Museum helps to inspire book
We are always pleased to hear about how the Museum inspires people. This new book (set in nearby Exmoor) by Jane Jordan called “The Beekeeper’s Daughter” was partially inspired by a visit to the Museum.
Jane mentioned her visit to the Museum in this interview: https://thebookbreeze.wordpress.com/2017/01/25/interview-with-jane-jordan-author-of-the-historical-thriller-the-beekeepers-daughter/
“One of the most fascinating places of research was at the witchcraft museum in Cornwall England, it has a vast collection of implements used to test a witch… as well as artifacts such as witch bottles, dolls made from hair and bone and chilling documents.”
A copy of the book was also donated to the library by the author.
Thanks Jane, all the best with the book and we hope to see you here again soon!
