Local Author Lauren Busby reading her book 'Woblin', available for book signing

Background: Created by former Broadstairs creative writing student Lauren Busby and illustrated by Margate's award winning Alex Foster, Woblin is an uplifting children's rhyming story with strong moral messages throughout.  Focusing on a character by the same name, Woblin, previously ridiculed and driven to exile due to her physical appearance, meets a young boy who has also been teased.  Together, they embark on an adventure, which leads them to discover the importance of what's inside and the value of helping others; giving them both the new-found inner strength and sense of self-worth they had been missing.
