Norfolk Narratives - April & May

Norfolk Library and Information Service is celebrating Norfolk: its people, places and legends. During April and May, Norfolk Narratives will be showcasing books which reveal just some of the many images of Norfolk.

Norfolk Narratives launches on Saturday 12 April and runs through to 19 May. During this time we will be featuring books set in Norfolk’s diverse landscapes and hosting talks by local authors. Communities will have the chance to rediscover their local area, read together and share the narratives that bind us together.
