Love reading, love tea, love cakes
Meet the authors and enjoy home bakes
Join us in Mearns Community Library on Saturday 27th June, 1.00pm – 4.30pm, for afternoon tea, cakes and authors and share your love of reading with like-minded others.
Supported by Scottish Book Trust, we are delighted to welcome 3 Scottish authors who will talk to you about their work.
The afternoon will be very informal with tea and ‘fine pieces’ on offer and during three 40 minute sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet all our authors and mingle with other readers.
Take part in our quiz, buy books by the authors. Bring along a book you have read that you think others would enjoy and add it to the BookSwap table.
Our fantastic authors are:
Lisa Ballantyne’s debut novel, THE GUILTY ONE, was translated into over 25 languages, listed for two major literary awards and was also the Autumn 2012 Richard and Judy Book-club Winner.
Her new novel, REDEMPTION ROAD, will be published in July.
Ajay Close’s debut novel, OFFICIAL AND DOUBTFUL, was long-listed for the Orange Prize. This was followed by FORSPOKEN and TRUST (published last year). All three collected rave reviews. Two of her plays have been produced.
Her fourth novel, CUPID’S ITCH, will be published in September.
Craig Robertson’s acclaimed debut, RANDOM, was shortlisted for the CWA New Blood Dagger and was a Sunday Times bestseller. COLD GRAVE reached #2 on Kindle. Subsequent gritty crime novels have followed.
His sixth novel, IN PLACE OF DEATH, will be published in September.
Tickets £5, afternoon tea and cakes included.
