Join us for a deliciously dark crime-filled evening with two writers at the top of their game: Brian McGilloway and Araminta Hall. Brian and Araminta will be chatting about their new books, THE EMPTY ROOM and HIDDEN DEPTHS, as well as their writing process and publishing journey thus far. There will also be the chance for guests to ask the authors any burning questions…
Copies of both books will be available to buy on the night, and with each ticket, guests will receive a free drink on arrival and 10% off all book purchases. Additionally, on buying a ticket, each guest will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a recent selection of Prem1ier and GSFF Book Club picks!
