Library Events This Autumn

Library Events This Autumn

We have four fantastic author and poetry events happening in our libraries this autumn.

We’re delighted to be hosting four author and poetry events in our libraries this autumn.

We’ll be kicking off the series at Horsham Library on Thursday 14 September 7.00-8.00pm with Crime - A Universal Language. Translated fiction lets us delve into other cultures…and other crimes. But how do you go about translating a book? We’ll be putting this question and many more to Quentin Bates and Marina Sofia, two leading translators of crime fiction.

Burgess Hill Library will be hosting an evening In Conversation with Harriet Evans on Wednesday 27 September 7.00-8.30pm. Harriet will be talking about her journey into reading and writing, including her new novel The Stargazers, as part of Burgess Hill Festival.

On Tuesday 3 October at 7.00pm, join us at Haywards Heath Library for An Evening with Lesley Thomson, critically acclaimed crime author, as she introduces the latest title in ‘The Detective's Daughter’ series, The Mystery of Yew Tree House.

Finally, Thursday 5 October is National Poetry Day. Join us at 7.00pm for A Celebration of Poetry with Simon Brett and Barry Smith at Chichester Library. Barry Smith, South Downs Poetry Festival director, launches his brand-new collection, Reeling and Writhing. Enjoy live music on classical guitar by Linda Kelsall-Barnett and share your own poetry in the open mic section of the evening!
