Crime Writing Month events at Carnegie Library

Join us in June for a month of crime

Crime Writing Month Logo

National Crime Writing Month is a unique literary festival throughout the UK which promotes the Crime genre, both fiction and non-fiction. It provides readers with the opportunity to explore the latest and best crime writing, as well as to discover (or rediscover) many classic writers.

To celebrate we have organised a variety of events including; a book group murder mystery social evening, author talks, a crime writing workshop and an old Ayr crime walk.  We really hope you can join us for a month of crime related thrills.
