Edward Chaney in discussion with Jenny Kendall-Tobias


Over the last week, Edward Chaney and Blue Ormer’s Steve Foote were interviewed twice by Jenny Kendall-Tobias of BBC Radio Guernsey at the Guernsey Literary Festival, joined in a Book Group discussion on The Book of Ebenezer Le Page at the Guille-Alles Library, marvelled at the Ebenezer Bookbench, and signed a lot of books at a book signing session at the Press Bookshop.

We also took an afternoon out to show the family of G.B. Edwards around the island of Guernsey – including the places where his family used to live, as well as Chouet, the home of the Gerald’s fictional creation, Ebenezer Le Page.
