Murder In The Rhubarb Triangle – Part 2

Sharing is caring!

Another successful event took place on Saturday 22nd June 2024.

17 successful crime writers gathered at Wakefield Library to chat to readers, share their crime writing knowledge and expertise as part of National Crime Reading Month

Together with The Reading Agency and the Crime Writing Association, National Crime Reading Month is celebrated throughout the UK, to encourage readers (and non-readers) to #pickupapageturner

From cosy crime, psychological thrillers and police procedurals, all of the attending authors are either from Yorkshire or writes books that are set in our fair county.

Feedback has been very encouraging! “What a great event! My friend and I arrived at 1pm but we’ll definitely be there with sandwiches and flask to stay all day next year. Well done Wakefield Library organisers – great job! We thoroughly enjoyed the day; planning the storyline, listening to the amazing authors about their books, where they get their ideas, developing their characters, how they maintain reader interest, murder, intrigue and much much more. Even if you’re not intending to write your own novel, its definitely worth the visit and what a wonderful group of gifted authors we have locally, Wakefield should be proud. Congratulations Wakefield Library, can’t wait for next year.”๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“•๐Ÿ“’๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“–
