Local History Books and Talks by Pip Wright
I am a retired Primary School Teacher, living in Stowmarket in Suffolk. I now write local history books and give talks to groups of all kinds and all ages across East Anglia. I have spent a number of years gathering information on Suffolk social history. My particular passion is the newspapers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and have produced a number of books drawing amusing items from old local papers. I still have hundreds more good stories I intend to publish.
This is one of a number of historical novels written about real local people from the past... The others are 'Lydia', 'Daniel Malden', 'Whistlecraft' and 'The Class of '63', a novel set around a charity school in Earl Stonham in 1763.
Many of my books are now out of print and likely to remain so. the few titles I have are reduced in price to just £5 for as long as I have copies to sell - The Class of '63, Daniel Malden & News from Essex. The two titles published some time ago by Poppyland Publishing (The Diary of a Poor Suffolk Woodman & I read it in the Local Rag) are still available from their website at a much reduced price.
