May the 4th Be With You & European Crime Night 9 May 2013

May the 4th Be With You - Happy Star Wars Day to all my followers.

New Writing North have emailed me the following information that I thought may be of interest to my followers:

2 May 2013
European Crime Night
Lit & Phil, Newcastle: Thursday 9 May, 6.30pm
We’re delighted to be hosting this special event in partnership with Speaking Volumes Live Literature, bringing the best in European crime writing to Tyneside. You know and have devoured Scandinavian crime novelists over the past few years; now’s the time to discover bestselling writers in the genre from Poland and Denmark.
Zygmunt Miloszewski is an award-winning Polish crime novelist, whose most recent book is A Grain of Truth (Bitter Lemon Press, 2012), which Publisher’s Weekly said had “a smart plot, an engagingly acerbic lead, and a nuanced portrayal of 2009 Poland”.
Joining him will be Pia Juul, one of Denmark’s most celebrated writers, whose awards as both a poet and prose writer speak of the quality of her work. Her most recent novel is The Murder of Halland (Peirene Press, 2012), which Eurocrime described as “…in many ways a perfect ‘literary’ crime novella.”
The writers will be interviewed by Rosie Goldsmith, and read from their most recent books and take questions from the audience.
Tickets: £3 on the door. No advance booking is required.
Books will be available to buy and the authors available for dedications and signings.
