The eagerly anticipated anthology from The Egton Bridge Writers’ Group (based in the Esk Valley on the edge of the North York Moors) has just been released. After the success of their first book, ‘Bilberry Pie’, which won the ‘Anthology of the Year’ in 2006, membership increased from six to twelve, and this latest book, ‘Second Helping’, the fruit of the group’s work over the last five years. ‘The Hare’ is one of the sketches by member Hilary Walker.
The content has a strong local flavour and a wide range of interest: history, romance, humour, wildlife, occupations and folklore, a mixture of fact, fiction and poetry. The book is illustrated with colour photographs and original designs, some of which were produced by members. It retails at £5.95.
