BRIDLINGTON poet Anne Mullender held a special event at the town’s central library to officially launch her debut book.
Spreading my Wings is the first complete collection of Anne’s work to be published and is available to buy in Bridlington bookshops, Garlands and Bethany Bookshops - both on Promenade.
The book contains many poems inspired by Anne’s experiences of Bridlington, both as a resident and through childhood holidays in the resort, and at Saturday’s book launch she treated visitors to special readings from the collection, which attendees said brought the poems to life.
Anne was overwhelmed by the support given to her at the launch.
She has thanked Mike Wilson for the production of her first book and was delighted that her daughters, Carolyn and Suzanne, were there to celebrate the occasion.
“There was an extremely warm and happy atmosphere,” Anne said.
She also thanked her friend and fellow author Linda Acaster, whose creative writing class at St Mary’s College, Bridlington, set Anne off on the path into writing.
