Tracy Borman: New Library Patron

Lavenham Library is delighted to announce its first Patron!

Tracy Borman is a biographer and historical fiction writer who has been a firm favourite at several Lavenham Literary Festivals. She is an avid supporter of libraries and in 2018 was the speaker at a highly successful event to raise funds for Lavenham Library. She has already offered to speak at a similar event in September of this year. When approached about the idea of becoming our patron she responded immediately saying ‘It will be a huge honour and I am thrilled to accept. Thank you so much for thinking of me. You know how dear to my heart Lavenham is, and you’re right that I’m a great supporter of libraries in general.’ More details of the event will follow.
