SOME of Yorkshire’s top authors will be providing a thrilling chapter to a new festival in Scarborough.
Yorkshire Book Day takes place in the Concert Room at Scarborough Library on Thursday August 2 as part of the five-day “A Festival of Yorkshire – Scarborough”, which is being supported by Welcome to Yorkshire.
The authors taking part – Craig Bradley, Andy Seed, Penny Dolan, Malcolm Rose and Mike Pannett – have between them amassed thousands of book sales and will be on hand to sign copies of their work.
Sheila Silvester, from the Friends of Scarborough Library, said: “We’re delighted to have brought together such an eclectic mix of Yorkshire talent which will appeal to a wide group of book-lovers.
“Literature is such a massive part of Yorkshire’s cultural appeal, it is really great to be able to celebrate that in this way.”
The festival begins on August 1.
