Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

World Book Night celebrated with Read Regional authors


Mar 9, 2018

WORLD Book Night is to be celebrated in Middlesbrough with two authors talking about their work.

David Mark and Carmen Marcus will be at Acklam Community Hub and Library in Tuesday, April 24 from 7pm-8.30pm.

David Mark is already well known for his Hull based crime series featuring DS Aector McAvoy. Tonight he introduces his first historical fiction novel The Zealot’s Bones– a dark mystery set in 1849 in Hull during a cholera outbreak.

The story centres on Meshach Stone, a disgraced soldier and spy now serving as bodyguard to rich young archaeologist Diligence Matheson. They have come to the north seeking the last resting place of one of Christ’s apostles.

Carmen Marcus is a performance poet from Saltburn who will introduce her debut novel How Saints Die – a tale of strength and survival inspired by seaside folklore and superstitions.
