Anna Jacobs visited her home territory

Posted 23 Jul 2015 by Joanne Eaves in Latest Libraries News

Anna Jacobs was warmly received at Spotland Library, Rochdale, by an enthusiastic audience of nearly 50 avid fans.

Anna, who was visiting as part of a north west tour to promote her 70th novel, “A Time to Remember”, was born and brought up in the Spotland area before attending Leeds University, and then emigrating to Australia in the 1970s. Author addressing an audience

Senior Library and Information Assistant, Linda Mainwaring, said: “The afternoon was a great success. Anna delighted the audience with tales of her early life and how she came to be such a successful writer. It’s been wonderful to have so much interest and support for this event, with people travelling from as far afield as Todmorden and Morecambe, as well as from across the borough”.

“Excellent!”, “Fabulous!” and “Superb!” were just some of the comments received via the library’s visitors book.

Local bookseller Bright Books attended with a selection of Anna’s titles, new and old, and lots of people took the opportunity to have a copy personally signed.
