South Ayrshire Libraries Readers’ Day

Readers Day Promotional Image No Text

A day for all those who enjoy reading

If you’re reading this post then we may have something right up your street! We’ve signed up a host of great authors for our annual Readers’ Day at the Carnegie Library in Ayr, and we’d love to see you there on Sunday 4 September 2016.

You might know Dr Tom Smith as a regular contributor on the BBC’s Kaye Adams programme, but have you read his Seaside Practice trilogy yet? He’ll be on hand to tell you more.

The award-winning poet and playwright, novelist and short story writer, Alan Spence, will be with us too, sharing his thoughts on a lifetime in print and on his latest novel ‘ Night Boat’ based on the life of Zen master Hakuin.

For fans of the darker side of life, the up and coming writer Kirsten Innes will share her fascinating journey following the success of her debut novel ‘Fishnet’ which explores the world of prostitution.

Rounding off with the prolific Helen Fitzgerald – with more than ten novels under her belt including 2013’s ‘The Cry’ which was long-listed for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year, and this year’s follow-up ‘Viral’ – we can guarantee something for everyone.
