It is good to know that the Women's Institutes are supporting the petition for Love our Llibraries by signing on line. It is possible to cut and paste the URL http://www.thewi.org.uk/standard.aspx?id=24427. The closure of many libraries would be a big disadvantage to both children and adults and our country in general. As a writer and a reader I appreciate the support of such an influential organisation, and everyone who can help preserve our public libraries.
I did have a pleasant surprise today from G C Books who organise the sale of books at Wigtown Book Festival at the end of September. All the available copies of A Home Of Our Own and Heart of the Home had sold. So thank you to all who bought my books also to all those who made such a delightful and responsive audience.
