BEST selling cookery writer Sue Lawrence will appear for afternoon tea to help raise money for the MS Society at Shetland library next week and talk about her latest novel The Night He Left.
Lawrence is best known for her cookery books written after winning the first ever Masterchef TV programme in 1991, but has recently turned to writing fiction.
Library staff have promised her visit will also feature a good selection of homebakes, perhaps some made from her own recipes, to help raise funds for the MS Society for people with multiple sclerosis.
Lawrence has featured Shetland in her work many times, including in her book A Cook’s Tour of Scotland.
“I have been fortunate enough to visit Shetland several times now and each time cannot wait to come back,” she said. “I am so looking forward to this event at Shetland Library.”
The event is at 3pm in the Old Library on Wednesday 1 June.
Donations will be taken for tea and cake, and there will be a book signing afterwards.
