Kibworth Community Library

“I can feel infinitely alive curled up on the sofa reading a book.”
— Benedict Cumberbatch

Have you been doing a lot of reading over the summer? Especially during the heat waves when being indoors sometimes seemed the best place to be?

Obviously, we love reading here at the library and we love meeting authors. So, we are very excited to tell you that we have two fantastic author events in the library coming very soon.

Murder, mayhem and a writing life

Murder on sea by Jane Adams

Leicester author Jane Adams is making a welcome return to the library on the evening of Tuesday 4 October at 7.30pm. Jane has written forty published crime novels ranging in genre from cosy to police procedural to historical, plus a few with a supernatural twist. She will be reading from her latest novels and talking about crime writing. So come along, sit down with a glass of wine and join the conversation. Tickets are on sale now in the library for £5 and again include complimentary refreshments.

Joanne Burn – The Hemlock Cure

The Hemlock Cure by Joanne Burn

On Monday 24 October at 7.30pm we welcome author Joanne Burn. Joanne is a local author, born in Northampton, now living in the Peak District where she works as a writing coach. Her first book, ‘Petals and Stones’, was published in 2018. Her second book, ‘The Hemlock Cure’, was released earlier this year.

Set in the village of Eyam during the Great Plague, ‘The Hemlock Cure’ is a beautifully written novel about love, persecution and survival during the darkest of times. Please join us in conversation with Joanne. Tickets cost £6, including complimentary refreshments.
