Author of self-help book, Stitch Your Own Silver Linings, Christine L Conroy will be signing books at Waterstones in Cornmarket, Lancaster, on Saturday July 5.
Christine’s mother, sister and seven-year-old daughter were diagnosed with cancer and they are the inspiration for her book.
Christine said: “There will be many of your readers suffering from or caring for someone with cancer and I would dearly love the opportunity to reach them with my message of hope.
“Stitch Your Own Silver Linings shows how to build resilience and create happiness and success no matter what your life circumstances.”
Christine and husband Robin ran a kitchen and bedroom furniture design company on Market Street in Carnforth from 1975 to 1983, and still regularly visit the area for short breaks.
The book signing starts from noon.
