A new book that records a family’s Covid-19 experience is launching in Wisbech.
The book, ‘Journal of our Plague Year 2020-2021' is written by Wisbech author, Richard Humphries.
It’s a candid, day-by-day, personal account of Richard’s journey through the coronavirus pandemic.
It charts the way he saw his own family gradually disintegrate over 12 months.
“It really was a most extraordinary time and I felt it just had to be recorded,” said Richard.
