Book now: Maggie O’Farrell, Lin Anderson and Alex Gray

Details of some fantastic looking events happening in Edinburgh Libraries next month:

Maggie O’Farrell

At every author event we hand out questionnaries asking our audience which other authors they would like us to book. “Get us Maggie O’Farrell!” they say. So we have.

The writer of ‘The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox’ and ‘The hand that first held mine’ will join us, along with founder and former Director of the Edinburgh International Book festival Jenny Brown, for a very special event to mark World Book Night. This is sure sure to be massively popular so book early!

Central Library, Monday 23rd April, 6.30 – 9.15pm.

To book a place call 0131 242 8100, email readerdevelopment@edinburgh.gov.uk or book online

Alex Gray in conversation with Jackie McGlone

“I have come to the conclusion that there really are people out there who are simply evil”.

Alex Gray is a crime writer who takes her research seriously. Having completed the¬†University of Glasgow’s Course in Forensic Medical Sciences Alex’s award-winning writing has an authenticity that’s hard to match.

Edit: Unfortunately the Alex Gray event has been cancelled

Lin Anderson

We enjoyed Lin’s last visit to Morningside Library so much we couldn’t wait to get her back! This time she’ll be at Drumbrae to talk about writing, reading and whatever you ask her!

Drumbrae Library Hub, Wednesday 18th April, 6.30 – 7.45pm

To book a place email drumbrae.library@edinburgh.gov.uk or call 0131 529 5244.

Nothing but the poem

It’s just what it sounds like!¬† Poet-in-residence Ryan Van Winkle will read a poem for discussion afterwards. No fear, no jargon, no experience needed: nothing but the poem.

Central Library, Wednesday 18th April, 6.30 – 7.45pm

Email readerdevelopment@edinburgh.gov.uk or call 0131 242 8100 to book your place
