Meet a first-time author in a Lancashire library

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

A fiction writer who recently launched her debut psychological thriller will visit a library later this month.

Jo Fenton will be at Rawtenstall Library on Saturday 26 January from 2pm to 3pm for a special free event.

The author will be talking about her book, speaking with visitors at the event and signing copies of the debut novel 'The Brotherhood'.

The book is about a vulnerable young woman, Melissa, who is grieving after the death of her parents. Melissa turns to her faith to help to handle her grief and into the welcoming arms of a religious sect. Captivated by their leader, Dominic, Melissa leaves her old life behind and moves to the countryside to join them. Melissa soon begins to wonder if The Brotherhood is the safe haven that she originally believed it to be.

It is free to attend the event at the library, but tickets are limited and must be booked in advance.

County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "I'm sure that this will be an enjoyable event to go along to.

"The debut book sounds interesting, as it's a fast-moving tale about a vulnerable woman's strength against the odds. I hope that the debut novel goes well."

Jo now lives in Manchester, and is originally from Hemel Hempstead. The author is currently writing her second book.

Tickets for the event can be booked by calling in at the library.
