Saturday, March 4th 2006 : "A new entry at last"
I've been prompted to write this because Maz, one of the librarians in Huddersfield, said it was a month since the last entry. It made me realise someone might be reading it.
Since coming back from Shetland things have been frantic. There was the Ottakar's evening with Lesley Horton and John Connor. Ottakar's staff in Huddersfield are always really welcoming and although it had snowed earlier in the day there was a good turn out. Three Opening the Book training sessions. Meeting up with the rest of Murder Squad in Ilkley to work on the Left Coast Crime presentation. And real work - preparations for our World Book Day event in Huddersfield Library. This was a chance to talk about books I've enjoyed as part of the InterCrime project.
The event was called DARK DAYS, DARK DEEDS and was a celebration of crime fiction from Scadinavia, Russia and Iceland. We found two young actors to read from the books, there were refreshments with a Nordic theme. The audience of around 40 seemed to enjoy it. More importantly there was a queue at the end of people wanting to borrow and reserve the books, and that was what it was all about...
