Formby Book's Crime Night!

WELL it was a "Criminally Good Night" at Formby Books, on 15 March 2012. The night was held at the Book Shop that is sited within the village's historic Derbyshires, on Chapel Lane. It was a good, old fashioned get-together for 60 plus, like minded people, who have a passion for books, but also on offer were some fantastic treats... A spread of food was put on by the Derbyshires' Tea Shop and Formby Books stunning Deputy Manager, Vicki, when not selling books, is a singer, so appropriately she delivered some crime related tunes. Not forgetting Magical John Harding, who amused the kids and adults alike. But we have to say, it was no shock that the highlight of the night came from talks given by two amazing, local authors, Martin Edwards and Kate Ellis. Their books will be on our Mersey Reporter Shop very soon! If you missed the night, well do not panic as they are offering what promises be another fantastic event; this time a very special visit from Rachel Joyce on Thursday, 29 March 2012, again, inside Derbyshires. It will take place from 12 noon and run until 2pm, with a buffet, a reading, and a signing on offer. 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' has only been out for a few days, yet it is already high in the bestseller charts and looks like being the fastest selling debut novel of the year. So do not miss this opportunity! And even more amazing events are to follow!  We will let the photos on this link tell you the rest of the tale of what happened on the Crime Night!!!  Enjoy...
