Please note that because of Easter the next EAW pub get-together will be held on Tuesday 3 April at The Plough, St Benedicts Street, Norwich from 5 until about 7 pm. Please come along and join us if you can.
EAW member Rachel Hore will be celebrating the launch of her new novel at Benji's restaurant, Jarrolds, Norwich at 6.30 on Wednesday 28 March. Tickets £7.50 from Jarrolds.
EAW member Phyllida Scrivens, whose launch for her new book on Norwich's 27 Lady Mayoresses had to be postponed due to the snow on 1 March, will be celebrating at Jarrolds, Norwich on Wednesday 21 March at 6.30 pm. Tickets £5 from Jarrolds.
Please note that the spring outing to Scolt Head Island on 22 April is now fully booked. Thank you to all who responded.
Please come along and join fellow EAW and SoA members for a convivial drink or two at The Plough on St Benedicts Street, Norwich, on Monday 5 March from 5 to 7 pm. If you haven't been along to one of these get-togethers before, they're very informal and enjoyable. We will try to bag the large table on the left as you enter the pub; there will be a pile of books (new and old) in front of me which people will be welcome to take. See you there!

Just to let you know that my second book launch will take place on the evening of Thursday 1st March.

EAW member Terence Blacker has sent the following email:
I'm happy to say I'll be returning to Suffolk's most stylish venue, Abbey Hall in Eye, on Saturday 17th March for an evening of chat and songs, some from my forthcoming CD, the inappropriately named Enough About Me.
The show is entitled From Here to Obscurity, there will be wine, cheese and sophistication - in the audience at least. I'm really looking forward to it, and will hope to see you there.
Tickets are available here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/from-here-to-obscurity-tickets-42648747552.

They can create a profile quickly and easily on our website, www.thefabler.ru.
Although we do not pay for every submission, we do offer the following benefits to authors:
