Tuesday, January 29, 2019

A successful local writer of young adult fiction will visit Euxton Library soon.

Alice Broadway, from Buckshaw Village, will be at the library on Saturday 2 February from 10.30am to 12 noon for a special free event.

The author will be talking about her book, speaking with visitors and signing copies of her novel, 'Spark,' which is the second book in the fantasy Skinbooks Trilogy.

The sequel to her bestselling debut 'Ink', it brings readers further into a world where actions are interlinked. The book is about having your perspective changed and understanding other people's point of view.

The event is free to attend, 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: "I'm sure that this will be an interesting event. I hope that young people especially go along to it.

"Alice's first novel, 'Ink' was one of the best-selling novels for young adults in 2017.

"The sequel sounds very interesting. I'm told that it is a real page-turner."

Alice lives in Buckshaw Village, and is originally from Oxford. She is currently writing the third book in the trilogy.

Tickets for the event can be booked by calling in at the library.

The event is suitable for young people over the age of 10.
