Release date: 8 April 2022
West Sussex Libraries are holding two in-person author events this month.
The free events have been organised to celebrate reading and to encourage customers back to their local libraries.
The first event takes place in Worthing Library on Tuesday 19 April at 7pm with bestselling authors Ayisha Malik and Kate Harrison. On the night they will be talking about writing, their journey into reading and their upcoming releases.
The second event will be held in Crawley Library on Tuesday 26 April at 7pm and will have acclaimed authors Harriet Evans and Sophie Ward being asked questions about their experiences growing up with books and talking about their novels and upcoming releases.
These events are designed to be friendly and accessible allowing attendees to celebrate books, reading and wellbeing.
Both will be followed by a book sale and book signing.
It is free to attend both sessions and tickets need to be booked in advance through Eventbrite:
These two events have been inspired by the BBC’s ‘Novels That Shaped Our World’ campaign, which West Sussex County Council Libraries participated in last year.
As part of the campaign the Library Service held three successful online author events in February 2021 with authors Elly Griffiths, Isabel Ashdown and Jane Lythell.
At the end of the project the service was awarded additional funding which has been used to hold these in-person events at Worthing and Crawley Library.
