The Leeds Library on Commercial Street has been good enough to offer to host an event on Wednesday, April 17th at 6pm, where I’ll be speaking and reading from my Leeds books, featuring Constable Richard Nottingham, most particularly the newest in the series, At the Dying of the Year.
As some of you will know, the Leeds Library is a private subscription library. It’s existed since 1768, so it’s very much a part of Leeds history, and a chance to see a remarkable place (even if you have to suffer me, too – but don’t despair, as I’m told there will be wine).
The event is free and open to all. I’m asking the charity Simon on the Streets, which does such wonderful work, to come along and I hope you’ll donate to them.
The Library has asked that if you want to attend you let them know, as seating will be limited and some of their members will (hopefully) want to be there. They’ve asked that you email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 0113 245 3071 to tell them, as soon as you can.
I hope to see you. I’m planning very few events around this book, so this might be your big chance to throw rotten fruit – as long as you’re careful to hit me, not the books!
