At Woodbridge Library

The Waveney Author Group is already under way on their 13-date tour covering Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and London.

Southwold Library


The Waveney Author Group (WAG) had their first library event at Southwold Library on Mon 17th Aug 2015. A lovely small library, managed by Charlotte Clark. Although small it has nearly everything, in fact it would be hard to find what it doesn’t have.

Before starting this author event a holiday maker popped in with some courgettes that had grown into marrows (she had popped home to Norfolk to check on her garden) and asked Charlotte if she would like to sell them, along with the plants that the library was selling. The courgettes /marrows were huge!


Here are some photos, in no particular order:
