In April a number of Pan Macmillan authors are attending libraries across the North East for a series of special author events.
From the 21-23 April the Big North Book Run will take place with three great authors -Rita Bradshaw, Mari Hannah and Lucy Diamond each visiting a library in Northumberland.
Meet Rita Bradshaw at Bedlington Library - 21 April at 7pm - 8pm
Born in Northamptonshire, where she still lives, Rita started her writing career with Mills & Boon before branching out into historical sagas. Now with 19 novels to her name, Rita is one of the country’s best-selling and most popular writers of historical fiction. Despite her Midlands background, several of her novels are set in the pit villages of the North East. We are delighted she is coming to Northumberland where she will talk about her life and career with her trademark warmth and friendliness.
Please contact Bedlington Library on Tel: 01670 622201 beforehand to book. Ticket price £2.50.
Meet Mari Hannah at Berwick Library (The Swan Centre) - 22 April at 2.30pm - 3.30pm
Mari is well known for her Kate Daniels crime novels. Mari will talk about her choice of a new hero in 'The Silent Room' and what it is like to have your work adapted for TV.
This event is also part of our World Book Night celebrations so please bring a book to swap with other participants as part of World Book Night.
Please contact Berwick library on Tel: 01670 626099 beforehand to book. Ticket price £2.50. This event will be taking place at The Swan Centre, the temporary home of Berwick Library.
Meet Lucy Diamond at Ashington Library - 23 April at 2pm -3pm
A Girls' Afternoon Out with Lucy Diamond, author of the popular 'Beach Cafe ' Series. Although Lucy started out writing children’s fiction (and still does), her Beach Café series propelled her into the bestseller charts and earned her the title ‘queen of summer reading’. If you enjoy Sophie Kinsella or Milly Johnson, then Lucy’s brand of contemporary women’s fiction will appeal.
Come and hear Lucy talk about her work, buy a book and enjoy cupcakes and bubbly.
