This World Book Day, you can meet Bloomsbury author Jane Rusbridge at Chichester Library where she will share her fascination with the West Sussex myths, mysteries and legends from which her latest novel, Rook, took shape.
Jane Rusbridge draws inspiration from the landscape of Sussex; the photograph used for the cover of The Devil’s Music was taken on Wittering beach and Rook, a Guardian Readers’ Book of the Year, is set in Bosham. Her latest novel explores the connections between three women’s secrets – past and present – and the mystery surrounding Harold II’s burial place.
“What marks out Rusbridge’s novel is the passion with which she writes about her native Sussex and its more ancient landscapes” – The Independent.
“Conveys an emotional impact that resonates long after the closing pages” – Times Literary Supplement.
Katy of Chichester Copywriter, whose poetry and first novel is inspired by West Sussex landscapes and woodlands, is looking forward to hearing more about Jane’s creative writing process. As Katy also has clients based throughout Sussex and Hampshire – and her copy about such businesses often has a local theme – Fact, Fiction and some Sussex Mud is likely to prove interesting research for the copywriting emporium too!
