Okehampton Library: Cream Tea with Tania Crosse

Dartmoor author Tania Crosse

Catherine Cookson of Hound of the Baskerville Country

Okehampton library will play host to the ‘Catherine Cookson of Hound of the Baskerville Country’ on Wednesday 12 October, 2011, as author Tania Crosse shares a cream tea with guests and presents her latest novel, The Wrong Side of Happiness.

The author’s novels, which include; The River Girl, Cherrybrook Rose, and Hope at Holly Cottage, are all based on and around Dartmoor, and provide a vivid and evocative insight into local history. Her debut novel, ‘Morwellham’s Child’, was based on her first visit to the area and since then Tania has sold over 100,000 copies of her first two titles alone. She is rated among the top five per cent of authors for library loans in the UK, and her books are now being published in the US and translated into European languages.

Tania is continuing to work on her series of novels illustrating the rich history of Tavistock and the surrounding area of Dartmoor from Victorian times to the 1950s.

Tania continues to have links to the area, spending time in the Dartmoor cottage where she retreats to write and absorb the atmosphere of the places that inspire her.

Suppported by Friends of Okehampton Library, the event takes place in Okehampton Library on Wednesday 12th October at 2pm. Tickets are priced at £3 each to include a cream tea and can be purchased in advance from Okehampton Library on 01837 52805.
