Press release   •   May 29, 2014 15:35 BST

Critically acclaimed author Robert Williams will be visiting the recently refurbished Middleton Library on Saturday 21 June where he will be talking about his life and will be available for a book signing.  

Appearing in the library from 2pm til 3.30pm, Robert will mainly be focusing on his latest novel ‘Into the Trees’, which is set to be a huge hit.

Councillor Peter Williams, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Customer Services said:

“This is a great opportunity to hear about the life and work of this successful Manchester-based author as part of his North West tour. He is set to rise in popularity and success over the coming years and truly is a brilliant young author.”

Robert already has a Betty Trask Award to his name for his first novel ‘Luke and John’ which was translated into six languages and sold around the world. The Daily Telegraph hailed it a ‘hugely impressive debut’.

The Guardian, commenting on Williams’ second novel, ‘How the trouble started’ said: “Williams is undoubtedly a gifted writer and it will be intriguing to see where his imagination and strong descriptive talent take him next.”
