King's Lynn museum unveils new book on Margery Kempe

A new book, which aims to make the story of one of Lynn's most famous residents accessible to younger readers, has been launched this week.

Officials from the True's Yard Fisherfolk Museum last month announced plans to distribute copies of their work on Margery Kempe, who is credited as having dictated the first autobiography in the English language, to local schoolchildren.

And the completed work, Margery Kempe of Lynn, was unveiled during a ceremony at Lynn's town hall on Saturday, attended by borough deputy mayor Margaret Wilkinson.
