Magic Mixture Book Launch

On 13th April many Erskine Writers, contributors to the EW Children’s Anthology Magic Mixture and guest Councillor Ian Nicolson, gathered in Erskine Library to celebrate the official launch of the book. After a short speech by Councillor Nicholson, Ben Herrington, the young winner of the Children’s Christmas Story Competition read his excellent featured story, The Elf who Shouldn’t have Left. This was followed by a diverse mix of readings from a few of the contributors.
A short address by Alex Gray closed the ceremony but that was not the end of the celebrations. A cake was cut in honour of the occasion and to celebrate twenty years of Erskine Writers.
Copies of the anthology will be distributed to the schools in the Erskine area and to the local libraries. If you would like a copy of the anthology, priced £5.00, please contact one of the EW committee or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
