Pride of place for Vera's King's Lynn history book


By Lynn News Reporter


A book written by an elderly Lynn author has got pride of place in one of the town’s main booksellers - gaining more spotlight than Michelle Obama’s bestseller.

A new reprint of Vera Witt’s history book King’s Lynn Revisited - A Walk Into The Past has a prominent display stand as you walk into Smiths in Norfolk Street.

The book has also been placed next to the tills in the store.

A delighted Vera said she could not believe how well received the reprint had been.

She said: “The original was printed in 2001, but all the photos went black in the printing unfortunately.

“The new version has a new cover featuring Captain Vancouver and the pictures have come up fantastically clear this time. It is a history of Lynn and the people of Lynn.”

Vera was full of praise for the printing firm DSD, of Austin Fields, who printed the book.

“They have made a fantastic job of the book,” she said, and added that she was delighted they printed a special poster to be shown on the Smiths display in the store.

The book features a wealth of pictures, many supplied courtesy of the Lynn News, looking at aspects of life in the town over the years.

Vera has written a variety of books over the years, and recently published a book of poems inspired by the centenary of the First World War.

King’s Lynn Revisited - A Walk In the Past, from AlverBooks, costs £5.95.
