A very appropriate home!

Copies of Maggie Cobbett’s ‘Workhouse Orphan’ are now on sale in the Ripon Workhouse Museum, where she did some of her research.

Described by one reviewer as ‘accessible to children but enjoyable for readers of any age’, it should fly off the shelves.

Well, Maggie hopes so, anyway. She’s looking forward to holding a signing session at the Museum later this year.

Our friendly group meets once a fortnight in the Old Deanery on Minstergate, opposite Ripon Cathedral and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
