Penzance – the biography

Author: Mike Sagar-Fenton


Penzance – The Biography is the first full-length history of Penzance to be published for 40 years. It follows a timeline from Neolithic times to the the Quadrennial of the Borough in 2014, a story of drama, warfare, growth, disaster, and above all the courage to survive whatever fate throws at it, the spirit that still sustains Penzance today.

All books featured at the Penzance Literary Festival are available to buy from The Edge of the World bookshop in Penzance.

This book isn't specifically featured within an event at the 2015 Penzance Literary Festival.
