Author, T G (Terry) Stanton from Tinonee will visit MidCoast Council's Forster Library on Monday August 14 to talk about his new historical fiction piece 'Deliver Me From Evil'.

An initial talk scheduled at Wingham Library for Friday July 21 proved to be hugely popular and is now completely booked out, so a second “meet the author” event will be held in Forster library.

MidCoast Library's events officer Danielle Donnelly says "we're very pleased to be able to support our local authors and provide a platform for the community to learn more about their work".

Terry says that this support has been invaluable, "along with the extraordinary amount of help I've been given with research from the staff at Wingham and Taree Libraries".

'Deliver Me From Evil' is a fictionalised  account of the  story of Thomas Wentworth, who rose to be King Charles I's most influential Minister, and Earl of Strafford, during the 17th century.

Terry first came across the story of the Earl of Strafford during his school days in England.

This period of British history was turbulent with King Charles a controversial character who managed to alienate his Parliament and many of his subjects, prompting a civil war and his ultimate execution, convicted of treason.

If you're interested in the history of this period, or you're keen to learn about the process of writing, then this free talk will be invaluable to you. 

It's a great chance to meet the author and ask your questions directly.

The talk begins at 11am on Monday August 14 at Forster Library. Book now for this free event by selecting Events on the website
