Lancashire author Gianna Hartwright is concluding a 52-stop book signing tour with four dates at Dobbies garden centre in Clifton, Preston.
She will be signing copies of her book, The Befana Drama, from December 21 to 24.
The Befana Drama is based on a plot that features an argument between Italy’s present bringer, The Befana, and Santa Claus.
The book is full of magic and mayhem, and sees Italy’s Befana transformed into a younger witch called ‘Bef’ who embarks on a global adventure by broomstick to protect her VIPB (Very Important Present Bringer) patch from Santa’s encroachment.
She flies around the world stockpiling her traditional gifts of coal and sweets, with the assistance of gold given to her by the descendents of the Three Wise Men.
Pupils at St Teresa’s RC Primary in Penwortham have already been treated to an author visit by Gianna.
