CREDITON’S award-winning bookshop, The Bookery, is welcoming award-author Lucy Holland this month to talk about her new book “Song of the Huntress”.

Lucy, from Devon, writes in various genres, including myth, folklore, historical fiction, and fantasy.  Her recent books bring a new feminist perspective to Ancient British myth and legend, especially the Dark Ages period following the end of the Roman occupation when Celtic warlords fought for dominance of Britain.

Her new novel, “Song of the Huntress” recasts the folklore behind the Wild Hunt into a dark, feminist fantasy set in West Country Britain, and features amongst its cast of characters a Christian priest, Winfred of Crediantun, who we will know as Crediton’s Saint Boniface.

Lucy will be in conversation at The Bookery on Thursday, April 18 from 7pm.  Tickets are £5, redeemable against book purchase.
