Joy Cowley is a celebrated and beloved writer of books for children and young adults. What she is less well known for is her spiritual writing, which over many years has attracted and inspired a very different audience of readers. Late last year a book of her spiritual writing, Veil Over the Light, was published by FitzBeck Publishing. In this session publisher Michael Fitzsimons talks with Joy about her new book, and the motivations and challenges of writing about spiritual themes.
This is an event involved in the Featherston Booktown Festival on Friday 10th, Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May celebrating everything to do with books, writers and reading. The three-day programme includes writing workshops; poetry readings; talks by leading authors and illustrators; and a book fair including stalls with rare and second-hand books. There are also events specifically for children.
