Norwich Christian’s book signing at Millennium library

Elspeth Rushbrook, a Norwich-based Christian, will be signing copies of her first novel at the Norfolk Heritage Centre in the Forum on February 27 and talking about the book which explores boundaries between love, friendship, faith and sexuality. 

Elspeth Rushbrook self-published her first novel, Parallel Spirals, in July 2016 and is now celebrating getting it on to the shelves of the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library with a book signing event hosted by the Norfolk Heritage Centre, which will include a talk from the author, on Tuesday, February 27, 5.30-6.30pm.

Talking to Network Norwich and Norfolk not long after the book was published Elspeth said: “I wrote Parallel Spirals out of a need. Out of several. One was that as a writer, one can’t help but write, and I had a story I wanted to tell. It surprised me where it went - it wasn’t what I’d planned. Sometimes I am still surprised that it is me who wrote this story. It is not the story of me - I like to play with layers of selves - but it did help me work out some beliefs and issues of my own.”
“The story is set in a fictional Norwich Anglican church. I have been - and am - part of many faith communities, some here, some in other parts of the country. Ultimately, this is a love story - human and divine. It’s about discovering a love that’s shocking in its inclusion, shocking us out of our refusal to love, and basking in a love that is affirming, expanding, and is to be celebrated, wherever it is found.”
The event will take place in the Vernon Castle room in the Norfolk Heritage Centre on the second floor of the Library in The Forum. The book signing is part of LGBT History Month.
