Kriss talks to the audience

DEBUTnovelist Kriss Nichol held a successful launch of her new book at Newton Stewart library last Saturday.

Despite dismal weather outside the library’s events room was packed to hear the Northumbrian born poet talk about her book ‘In Desolate Corners, Shadows Crouch’, the story of how one family copes with schizophrenia and grief. This beautifully written novel from the Wigtownshire based writer was published through an Arts Council initiative and is available from bookshops and on line retailers.
