HERNE Bay children’s author Faye Beerling visited a primary school in Canterbury last week.
Ms Beerling spent the day at St Stephen’s Infant School on Thursday, where she held book readings and workshops before signing copies of Tales From The Clock Tower.
The book was published in October after Friends of Herne Bay Clock Tower commissioned Faye to write a story about the seaside landmark.
More than £2.50 from the sale of each book goes to the Friends to help with future funding and preservation.
Copies in primary schools across Kent and are on offer to parents at a discount price of £5.
The book’s recommended price is £5.99 and it is available in local bookstores, at Waterstones in Canterbury and at www.clocktowerfriends.org or www.rivertales. occasionalwit.co.uk and from any of the local libraries.
At the end of March, Faye is holding an event to launch her new book, A Country Ramble.
Anyone who buys the book can enjoy free face-painting and free entry to a magic show.
There will also be balloon-modelling and the opportunity to decorate gingerbread book characters with the Whitstable Gingerbread House Company.
This is all happening from 1p to 5pm on Saturday, March 28, at the May Lodge Club in Central Parade, Herne Bay.
Ms Beerling will also be at Waterstones in Canterbury for a book signing on Saturday, April 11, between 11am and 4pm.
