Historical fiction author appearing at Harrington Library

Local author, TG (Terry) Stanton will visit MidCoast Council's Harrington Library on Wednesday, October 25 to talk about his new historical fiction piece Deliver Me From Evil.

Terry’s visit to Harrington follows an earlier author talk he conducted at Wingham and Forster libraries, which proved to be hugely popular amongst the history buffs and fiction-lovers alike.

"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,” MidCoast Library's events officer Danielle Donnelly said.

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.

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 10:30am on Wednesday, October 25 at Harrington Library. Book now for this free event by selecting Events on our website www.midcoastlibraries.com.au.
