Portland Pirates at Tophill Library

an article by Harry Walton for View From Portland 1st December 2011

AUTHOR Carol Hunt gave children a reading from her latest book Portland Pirates at Portland Tophill Library.

The event was arranged by library manager Sharon Mitchell to help promote the library to the community.

She said: “We always want to get children in to our library and this was an ideal way because Carol actually lives in Easton.

“Her reading was such a success that we hope to organise similar events in the New Year.”

Carol said: “This was my first reading at the library and it was quite an important one for me because I have done most of my research for my books in here over the last five years, so it was nice to give something back.”
