Popular children’s author to visit Ardrossan bookstore next month


ARDROSSAN’s Seahorse bookstore will welcome children’s author Lorraine Johnston next month.

Lorraine, who is writer-in-residence at Dundonald Castle, has written four children’s books, with proceeds from three of the books going to local charities like Whiteleys Retreat as well as Charity Air Ambulance Scotland and the Scottish Wildlife Trust.

Lorraine’s work took her across the Atlantic to places like New York and New Orleans, where she read her work in crowded American bookstores.

And now the children’s author will read an excerpt from his popular book “MacMoley Moves Home” during the special event on Saturday, May 7 at 11:15 a.m., with the bookstore running a contest to win a limited-edition publication.

The competition run by Seahorse Bookstore will see one lucky winner get their hands on a special, limited edition “MacMoley Collectable and Illustration Print”.

Gordon and Molly Murray, owners of Seahorse Bookstore, set up the store with the aim of “igniting the imagination”.

Molly told the Herald: “It’s exactly what we envisioned when we started Seahorse. We love creating opportunities for people to connect with the community and be inspired.

“We are here to share fantastic stories!”

Readers are invited to support the independent bookshop and meet Lorraine and help support charity, as every copy of MacMoley Moves Home is donated to the Scottish Wildlife Trust.

To win the publication prize, readers can like and share the contest entry on the Seahorse Bookstore Facebook page to enter the raffle.
