|Spring Festival at Fulham Library|
Your invitation to meet the authors
The Spring Festival at Fulham Libary in May will include visits from two well known writers, who will be passing on tips to other budding authors and answering questions from readers.
Jean Fullerton, whose historical romance No Cure for Love won the 2006 Harry Bowling Prize, will be at the library on May 14.
Jean says she started writing later in life: " But you know what they say – if you never pick up a paintbrush, how do you know you can’t paint?
And to inspire others to follow her example, she has promised to turn up to Fulham Library with her folder full of rejection letters!
Also appearing at Fulham Library are Robert Ryan, author of Death on the Ice, a novel based on Scott’s fateful polar expedition in 1912 and Nick Drake, a screenwriter who worked on Sliding Doors and Iris, among other films.
At Hammersmith Library, the Spring Festival includes visiting authors Matt Lynn, who specialises in military thrillers and Margaret Leroy, who specialises in writing about relationships and female sexuality.
Entry is by ticket, and these are available from the libraries or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
