Penny Legg in the Limelight

Waterstones in Portsmouth welcomed my little book and I, and, I have to say, I enjoyed meeting a diverse crowd of local readers.  Thanks for having me Pompey!

The official launch of Folklore of Hampshire was on Sunday 1st August at the Brushmakers Arms in tiny Upham.  Over 70 people attended and they were intrigued by the book and the haunted venue. It was lovely to see some of the people who had helped me with the research for the book and friends came from far and wide. My thanks to Keith and Nicola Venton, the inn's owners, who saw to it that everything went smoothly.

I will be signing the book at the West Quay, Southampton, branch of Waterstones on Saturday 14th August between 11 and 3 o'clock.  See you there.

Really enjoyed meeting everyone at the launch, a great afternoon. Just read the book and thought it was interesting, well written and researched.
