Anthony McCarten had the audience at West Mersea Library entralled as he read from his brilliant new novel ‘Brillance’ as part of the Essex Book Festival. The book is a fictional account of Thomas Edison’s relationship with J P Morgan, which Anthony spent years researching. His vivid description of J P Morgan’s famous nose really is a must read!!
Two further events we will be doing as part of the Festival are:
- Jaywick Martello Tower on Saturday 17th March at 7pm to hear Frances Wilson talk about her latest book ‘How to Survivie the Titanic or the sinking of J Bruce Ismay’
- Harwich Library on Wednesday 28th March at 2pm to hear Clare Morrall talk about her latest novel The Roundabout Man.
