Local author Anthea Simmons comes to this year’s Bridlit to talk about her latest book, Lightning Mary which tells the story of the young Mary Anning who searches for fossils on the windswept beaches of Dorset, intent to bring back treasures to help feed her family.  Mary must depend on her unique courage and knowledge to fulfil her dream to become a scientist.  At a time now, when it is possible with determination to follow one’s destiny, Anthea charts the inspiration behind her book.
