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.”
