Wrexham Carnival of Words

With just a few weeks to go the temperature is hotting up for the Carnival of Words literary festival.

We have several best-selling authors as part of this year’s exciting line up. Tim Weaver will be appearing on Tuesday 25 April, 7pm at Wrexham library. Tim will be talking about his latest chart topping bestseller Black Bird plus how he is developing an original TV series alongside one of the UK's biggest, most respected drama teams.

Mike Gayle’s novels include the Richard and Judy Book Club picks Half a World Away and All The Lonely People, hailed by The Guardian as 'A heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting look at isolation'. Mike will be here to tell us all about these books and more on Thursday 27th April, 7pm at Wrexham Library.

As if that wasn’t enough we also have two best-selling authors for our closing event. Erica James and Lucy Diamond will regale us with tales of their love of writing books which become best-sellers and the journeys they take to get there! They will appear at Wrexham Library on Saturday 29th April, 7pm. For more details and the full programme of events visit the website.
