|Publisher, Stephen Foote, Researcher, Jane Fleming and Author, Edward Chaney, together in Guernsey|
Guernsey writer Gerald Edwards was the creator of a fictional Guernsey character, the unforgettable Ebenezer Le Page, and it's been thrilling to witness the wave of local enthusiasm that has greeted the publication of Professor Chaney’s book.
My wife, Jane, has for many years been involved in the promotion of G B Edwards' world-famous novel and latterly in genealogical research for the biography.
In the run-up to the Festival, I entered some poems in the Poems on the Buses/Poems on the Move Competition and am pleased to report that the judge, former Poet Laureate, Sir Andrew Motion, selected three to appear in poster form at venues around the island and on board our local buses.
You can read all three poems below.
