Dougie Mac is delighted to welcome local author, Mel Sherratt, to the hospice for a ‘Meet the Author’ evening on Tuesday 9th October 2018.
Mel will be discussing her latest thriller, HUSH HUSH, and sharing with the audience her story about her journey to becoming a million-selling author.
There will be opportunity for supporters to have their books signed by Mel Sherratt and her new book will be available to purchase.
The event takes place during Hospice Care Week, an annual week of activity to raise the profile of hospice care across the UK, championed by national charity Hospice UK. To pay homage to this national awareness week, Mel, alongside Dougie Mac Chief Executive, David Webster, will also be sharing a few words about the importance of effective storytelling in hospice care.
Mel Sherratt is looking forward to the event and said:
“Storytelling is a huge part of everyone’s lives, not just mine. It gives everything a human element, enabling people to make connections and share emotions. I am honoured to be asked to speak in front of so many people. Let me take you on my journey for the evening – with David Webster as my host, it’s sure to be a brilliant show!
“Every single penny, from donations on the door and book sales, will go to this amazing hospice and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
David Webster, CEO at Dougie Mac, said:
“Mel is an inspirational writer and her books are un-put-down-able. This is an event for writing enthusiasts and for anyone who loves a great story. It is also a fantastic opportunity to join Mel in supporting your local hospice so I hope to see you there.”
