Norwich woman to launch coffee-inspired book

A Norwich woman is set to release her new book which will be sold in coffee shops across the city, as well as around the world.

Eve Stebbing, artistic director of Norwich-based theatre company Spin-Off Theatre, will launch Machiato this Thursday.

It will be sold in coffee shops with the intention that customers will never have to go without a good book to read.

The 70-page novella, which is the first in a series of coffee-inspired books, can also be bought as a print-on-demand book with Espresso Book Machines (EBM) in places including the Abu Dhabi National Library and Harvard University.

It tells the story of a man who decides to name himself after a cup of coffee on a whim and then sets up a huge emporium.

Miss Stebbing, 36, who lives off Unthank Road in the Golden Triangle, said: 'There are some serious issues in the book, but it's really just meant to be a bit of fun. It is designed to be read in a couple of sittings with your cup of coffee.'

Miss Stebbing will launch the book by reading a chapter a-piece in coffee shops around the city throughout the day, starting at The Window in Wensum Street at 11.30am, and finishing at Workshop in Earlham Road at 6.30pm.
