Sarah Salway's Digging Up Paradise gets enthusiastic response and raises funds and awareness for new charity Young Onset Parkinson's

The launch of Sarah Salway’s new book Digging Up Paradise saw more than 60 gardening and literary enthusiasts join the Tunbridge Wells author at Gardener & Cook on The Pantiles. The weather allowed guests to spill out onto the ‘tiles where Sarah read excerpts from her new book, published by Cultured Llama at £12. Guests enjoyed home-made cupcakes decorated with edible flowers and a glass or two of Pimms. Proceeds from very healthy book sales on the night went to a new charity being set up called Spotlight YOPD, aiming to raise awareness of Young Onset Parkinson’s. Sarah will be hosting a series of writer’s workshops at some of the Kent gardens featured in the book. For more information visit: writerinthegarden.com.
