Hear lots and lots and lots of writers in Hove - get to meet them too!

National Libraries Day 2012 is on Saturday 4th February 2012, and in Hove Library you will get to meet a whole bunch of talented local writers in the Periodicals Room from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.
There will be 11 of us: 

Kate Harrison writes for adults and teenagers - author of the Secret Shopper series
Sarah Rayner her new novel The Two Week Wait   is released on February 2nd. Her last one sold over 220 copies...(sorry, that should be 22000)
Susanna Quinn - journalist, ghost writer, Mum. Her first novel Glass Geishas is out next month. (Isn't that a brilliant title and yes, it is set in Japan...)
Lizzie Enfield - journalist and regular contributor to national newspapers and magazines, her  latest novel, Uncoupled is out on Friday February 3rd

Araminta Hall - author of Everything and Nothing  ("takes the Mary Poppins myth and turns it into a menacing tale")
Simon Toyne - author of the Sanctus thriller series

Mark Barrowcliffe  author of six novels - latest Wolfangel under the name of MD Lachlan
Dorothy Koomson -  author of seven novels including The Woman He Loved Before
Jo Rees - author of many best sellers including Platinum and Forbidden Pleasures
and me Bridget Whelan. Yep, not sure how I got into this illusterous line up either ....but at least A Good Confession is on the shelves of Hove library (actually hope it's not, hope someone is reading it....)
