Join us to celebrate World Book Night with two Read Regional crime authors.

Bradford born A A Dhand introduces ‘Streets of Darkness’ – an electrifyingly tense twelve-hour crime-thriller full of pace, power and passion. Detective Inspector Harry Virdee is suspended from work just as the most high-profile murder Bradford has ever seen occurs. Determined to restore his reputation Harry has just twelve hours to save his job, his city and his life.

Kathleen McKay’s novel ‘Hard Wired’ won the Northern Crime competition and features Charlie, who works at a bail hostel in Newcastle upon Tyne. Charlie’s life is violently shaken apart when her friend’s son gets murdered. In pursuing her quest for the murderer Charlie has to draw on depths lain dormant, and dig deep into her own resources, facing her own entrenched attitudes.

Tickets can be booked on 01642 817810.

We invite everyone attending to bring along a book for our ‘Book Swap’ table to share a book they’ve enjoyed and discover a new read for themselves.
