Celebrate World Book Night with Aberdeen City Libraries and James Oswald!
With only two weeks to go until World Book Night, Aberdeen City Libraries is thrilled to announce that Scottish crime writer James Oswald will be helping us celebrate with a free author event in Central Library.
James will be joining us at 6pm on Wednesday 23 April 2014 to talk about his new novel "Hangman's Song" as well as his other writings.
James has been building up quite a reputation as a great new talent in Scottish Crime writing with his Inspector McLean series which is gaining rave reviews. Appearances on Richard and Judy's Book Club couch as well as in the local and national press are proving just how popular his crime series has become.
We would love it if you could join Aberdeen City Libraries and James to help celebrate World Book Night with this free author event. The evening will begin at 6pm in Central Library, there will be time for questions and books will be available to buy courtesy of Waterstones.
Spaces are limited so booking is essential. To book your place at what we are sure will be a fantastic night out email Libraryevents@aberdeencity.gov.uk with your name and contact details or phone 652500.
