Lu Hersey dropped into the Museum this afternoon to donate a copy of her book Deep Water. She will be appearing at the North Cornwall Book Festival tomorrow.
She had lots of objects with her when she visited which relate to magic and witchcraft which she was going to be using during her talk.
To quote from the North Cornwall book festival's website:
"When her mum vanishes, Danni moves to a tiny Cornish fishing village where the locals treat her like a monster. As the village's disturbing past bubbles to the surface, Danni discovers that she's not who – or what – she thought she was. Taking her debut novel Deep Water as an exciting starting point, Lu will discuss writing stories inspired by local myths, legends and magic."
