Paul Howarth, Head of Content and Resource Development at Suffolk Libraries, said: “In recent times, Suffolk Libraries has built a strong track record of connecting readers with big-name authors through online events and conversations.  Following the brilliant success of our first online book festival in March, and our children’s online festival in August, we’re excited to be presenting this new series of live, online interviews with fascinating authors.” 

All events will take place online through Zoom and will consist of a live Q&A where the audience can ask questions and contribute to the discussion. 

A pre-recorded interview with thriller author Jack Carr will also be made available during the week. All events will be uploaded to the Suffolk Libraries YouTube channel afterwards.
