Description

Introducing the Lancaster Launch of Yvonne Battle-Felton's, Remembered.

Join North West Literary Arts in celebrating our very own Yvonne Battle-Felton's launch of Remembered, a story about memories, haunting, letting go, and motherhood. In Remembered, Spring, an emancipated slave, is forced to relive a painful past in order to lead her dying son home. She is joined by her dead sister, a burdened heart, and a book full of memories.

Yvonne will be reading from Remembered, answering questions, discussing all things writing, signing books, and celebrating with Lancaster. The evening will be chaired by Naomi Kruger.

Beverages and light refreshments will be provided.

Order your free ticket.

And, you're invited to join us for celebratory cocktails at The Crypt in Lancaster. If you'll be joining us afterwards, please let us know. Cost of drinks not included.
