7:00pm [7:00pm] Bill Lockwood's Book Signing & Publishing Tips
Bill Lockwood to hold Reading/ Discussion of his Novel “Megan of the Mists” North Walpole resident and former Bellows Falls resident Bill Lockwood will appear Thursday September 28 at 7:00 PM at the Rockingham Free Public Library in Bellows Falls for a reading and discussion of his second mass market historical fiction novel, “Megan of the Mists” During “the troubles” in Northern Ireland during the 1970s, Megan helps run contraband over the border for the illegal Irish Republican Army, trusting the ancient fairies of the mounds along the way to see her safely home. As she is drawn farther into rebel plots, she falls for a British soldier and is horrified to learn the IRA plans for him and his fellows to be blown up at their favorite bar—with a bomb she delivers and sets off. Andrew, of the Queen’s Own Sixty-First Highland Division, is not happy with the assignment to Northern Ireland and longs for his hometown in Scotland. When he meets Megan, who has been sent as a spy to scout out the bar he frequents, the two have an instant attraction. He hints at the possibility of marriage and a peaceful life elsewhere, an idea she is ready to consider. But how far must she run to escape the influence of the IRA? If only her fairies would save her… If anyone already has a copy, bring it and he will gladly sign it for you. He will also discuss his first novel, “Buried Gold, and the writing and publishing process. The Library is located at 65 Westminster Street in bellows Falls. Anyone seeking further information on this event may call the library at (802) 463-4270.
