Elly GriffithsIn a couple of weeks we'll be welcoming Elly Griffiths back to Woodbridge and the excitement is building.

If you remember, we've hosted Elly twice before. Each time, word spreads and her popularity as a writer and a speaker grows. Her audience is such that we have moved our event to Woodbridge Library to ensure we don't have to disappoint anyone who might like to join us.

Tickets are £18 to include a copy of the book, which retails at £18.99. I'm sure you'll agree that's good value, and you're supporting an independent high street business as well as the creator of the gripping Ruth Galloway series of books. But please don't delay - these tickets are flying out the door!

There are only a few more days until cookery writer Clodagh McKenna joins us in the bookshop.

If you've come along to any of the cookery events before, you'll know these are wonderful occasions, full of laughter, great ideas, and brilliant recipes to try.

Of course, for me, it's the usual panic as with any supper party, of getting the shopping done in time, ideas to keep the conversation going and moving the furniture.

There are still tickets available, so please don't leave it too late to tell me you're coming!

There are more author visits in the pipeline, and just confirmed is Matt Gaw, from Suffolk Wildlife Trust, who will be talking about his travels in a canoe through the nation's waterways in 'Pull of the River' on Wednesday 6 March.

Erin KellyLooking a little further ahead, another great thriller writer will be introducing her new book, set in Suffolk. On Thursday 11 April, Erin Kelly will talk about 'Stone Mothers' her novel about the impact of a mental hospital on its inmates, the local community, and lives generations later. Her research into the subject for this book is fascinating.

Erin is a great speaker and, for aspiring writers, is hugely inspiring with her tips on plotting and characterisation. Not to be missed!

I look forward to seeing you soon. Thank you for reading!
