April’s First Friday falls on the very first day of the month, and in the spirit of fresh beginnings, we will be welcoming two talented debut writers to the North West Literary Salon.
Deborah Andrews’ first novel Walking the Lights will be published by Freight in June 2016. Described as a ‘feminist Withnail & I’, the story centres on Maddy, a young actor finding her way and facing her past in mid-90’s Glasgow. Deborah will be giving us a sneak preview of what’s in store and answering questions about her journey as a writer.
Kim Moore’s first collection The Art of Falling includes poems steeped in realism and the language of the North. They touch on diverse themes including relationships, music, wolves and the people and places of Kim’s native Cumbria. Described as ‘vigourously alive’, ‘direct and compelling’ the poems seem like an appropriate way to welcome in the cruelest month, waking us up as the nights get lighter, ‘not designed to soothe or beguile’.
Order your FREE tickets, and join us on Friday April 1st at Waterstones, King Street, Lancaster for an evening of words, discovery, beginnings, food, discussion and music. We’d love to see you there!
