Local author Selwyn Williams, will be at Imagine Books, St Albans Street, on Wednesday, 1st August 2012 from 1.00pm to 4.00pm to launch his new book Treasure of the Golden Grape, published by Deadman’s Bay Publishing.

The book tells the exhilarating story of a Dutch Trading Ship out of Amsterdam which was wrecked in a storm of the Chesil beach in 1641. The story goes on to tell of the Dorset locals who salvaged her cargo and of what they went on to do during the English Civil War. Some of whom (The Crabchurch Conspirators) caused the deaths of over 500 people in Weymouth, most in just one night of bloodletting, mayhem and heroism.
