SPRING NEWS FROM THE TALLISTON LABYRINTH: FESTIVALS, REOPENING & NEW BOOK LAUNCH
Great to be welcoming guests back to the house and gardens which are looking spectacular as they start to bloom for the new year. Two items of news for you this time:
JOHN TARROW at the ESSEX BOOK FESTIVAL
One of the hardest parts of lockdown was the cancelling of a whole host of school visits, book group talks, conventions and book festival appearances. So it was wonderful news that The Starnger’s Guide to Talliston has been accepted as part of the Essex Book Festival for 2021. There’s a full programme of events at https://essexbookfestival.org.uk/ including an event with John Tarrow in conversation with storyteller Glenys Newton on 29 August at Cressing Temple Barns.
NEW BOOK LAUNCH!
Letters From The Labyrinth is an illustrated fantasy story based on the worlds from The Stranger’s Guide to Talliston – and is now out in first edition hardback book format.
Written by author John Tarrow and illustrated by Rebecca Solow, this quality A4-format 124-page hardback is a sequel, prequel and standalone story to the novel, exploring the thirteen locations of the house and novel but at a whole new set of different moments in time.
Each of the thirteen letters is a work of art, illustrated with beautiful watercolours, set in a vast collection of extraordinary times and places.
You can get it exclusively for now only direct from Tarrow.co.uk.
Here's some more images of the gorgeous book.
Best wishes and hope you have some super summer plans.
