Award-winning thriller writer 'comes home' to Northwich Library

24 March 2016

A best-selling thriller writer will be paying a visit to Northwich Library, the very first library he joined as a boy.

Award-winning crime author, Martin Edwards, will be giving a talk at Northwich Library on Wednesday, 20 April at 6.30pm, followed by a book signing.  Tickets cost £3.

Born in Knutsford and a former pupil of Sir John Deane’s Grammar School, Martin joined Northwich Library as a child. He works as a solicitor and lives in Cheshire with his wife and two children.

His first novel, All the Lonely People, introduced Liverpool lawyer Harry Devlin and was published in 1991, earning a nomination for the John Creasey Dagger for best first crime novel of the year.

He is the author of The Golden Age of Murder, which has been shortlisted for the Edgar and Agatha awards, as well as eighteen crime novels.
Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Wellbeing said: “Our libraries are vibrant hubs of activity at the heart of communities. Talks by authors, such as Martin Edwards, help bring books to life and give residents a unique opportunity to meet writers.

“Martin Edwards is a well-known crime author - it’s definitely going to be an exciting evening. We’re thrilled to be welcoming him back to Northwich Library.” For more information about the event, contact Northwich Library on 01606 44221.
