Meet a well-known author in a Lancashire library

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

A classic crime fiction writer who recently launched his seventh novel will visit three libraries this month.

Ian McFadyen will be at Thornton Library, Knott End Library and Poulton Library for a special free event on Friday 21 September.

Ian will be talking about his books, speaking with visitors to the event and signing copies of his latest book, 'The Steampunk Murder'.

The Steampunk Murder is the latest in the D.C.I Steve Carmichael murder mystery series of novels, set in rural Lancashire.

It is free to attend the events at each of the libraries, but tickets are limited and must be booked in advance.

County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "These promise to be really interesting events.

"Ian is very well-regarded and is now positioned in the top 10 per cent of most loaned authors in the last two years. I'm sure that his talks will be popular."

Ian is originally from Liverpool, and has been writing since 2000.

The events on Friday 21 September will take place as follows:

Thornton Library at 10am.

Knott End Library at 12 noon.

Poulton Library at 2.15pm.

Tickets for the events can be booked by calling in at the libraries.

Anyone who lives in the UK can join a Lancashire library, either online or by visiting in person. Membership is free and there are no age restrictions.
