A best-selling crime writer will take part in a special event in a coastal town next month.
Southwold Library is hosting the event with Ann Cleeves on Sunday 4th September at St Edmunds Church in the town.
Ms Cleeves is the multi-million bestselling author behind the novels that inspired the TV series Shetland, Vera and The Long Call.
Her first Shetland novel, Raven Black, won the Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger for best crime novel.
She was awarded an OBE in 2022 for reading and library services.
The event follows the recent Slaughter in Southwold crime writers festival which takes place every year and offers crime fans the chance to speak with their favorite authors.
Charlotte Clark, Director of Southwold Library, said: “We are delighted that Ann Cleeves is visiting Southwold for this special interview with the author.
“We were looking forward to welcoming her to our regular Crime Writer Festival in Southwold, so we were delighted that she agreed to come for this unique and special event.
“Southwold, and Suffolk as a whole, are home to many readers of crime novels and thrillers, so we are delighted to be able to organize this event for authors.”
