Authors visit

BOOKWORMS are being urged to go along to a library and kill some time with two authors.

Sheila Quigley and Bill Kitson will be talking about what it takes to write crime when they visit the Central Library, in York Road, Hartlepool.

The event will take place on Wednesday at 6.30pm.

Sheila is author of a series of novels set in her home town of Houghton le Spring, including Run For Home, Living on a Prayer and Thorn in my Side.

Meanwhile, Bill, from Yorkshire, has written novels featuring Detective Inspector Mark Nash.

The two have teamed up as part of National Crime Writers Month, organised by the Crime Writers Association.

Books will be available to buy on the night and Bill and Sheila will be happy to sign copies.

Librarian Denise Sparrowhawk said: “We are delighted to have two popular crime authors visiting the library.

“It is always great to be able to celebrate local talent.”

Tickets for the event are priced at £2.

They are available from any Hartlepool Library.
