Author Talk and Book Signing: Judith Williams, ‘Little History of Essex’

Wednesday 11th April from 6.30 pm

Come and hear local author Judith Williams talk about her latest book,

The Little History of Essex

There is nothing ‘little’ about the history of Essex! However, this small volume condenses that fascinating, rich history into a collection of stories and facts that will make you marvel at the events our county has witnessed. Discover the development of ship building at Harwich, the silk and woollen industries in central Essex, the fortunes of Chelmsford and Colchester and the rise of seaside resorts at Southend and Clacton. Take a journey through Essex’s historic struggles and celebrations or jump in to the era of your choice to discover the who, what and why of our county’s history.

This is a free event but space is limited so please reserve your place by email or phone 01206 578584.
