Join Maggie Cobbett for an evening talk at Ripon Workhouse Museum, about her book Workhouse Orphan.
The book, set at the beginning of the 20th century, follows the story of a 13-year-old orphan in London sent to work in a Yorkshire mining village, leaving his younger brothers and sister behind in the London workhouse. Ripon Union Workhouse provided inspiration and research for Maggie and provides the perfect immersive backdrop for this talk.
Maggie is a local Ripon resident and President of Ripon Writers’ Group. Since retiring from teaching, she has combined her love of writing with working as an extra in film and television.
The talk will take place on Wednesday 25 September 2019 at 7pm. Tickets are £5. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing on the night, but are also available to buy now from the Workhouse Museum shop if you can’t wait!
