REF exe lesley library1 Full House at Exmouth Library for Lesley Pearse
A full house of sixty were entertained by best-selling author Lesley Pearse at Exmouth Library last week. Lesley was in Exmouth to celebrate the launch of her latest paperback 'The promise'. Lesley has fond memories of visiting Exmouth as a child and has recently purchased a holiday home in Devon. Lesley spoke of her inspiration, her tireless research and her family's reaction to her racier stories. Her mother apparently wished she hadn't "exercised the coarser part of her imagination so vigorously". Librarian Chris Launder was thrilled with the response from the Exmouth public who supported the event. Chris is hopeful that Exmouth Library can host more exciting author events in the future.
