It’s been a few months since our last live event but we rather think this one is more than worth the wait. Introducing an afternoon with three of the finest writers in the UK, Howard Linskey, Alison Littlewood and Sarah Pinborough, hosted by the charismatic voice of horror, Mr. Jasper Bark.
Taking place on Saturday 5 October 2013, the event is scheduled to kick off at 2pm and will run until 4pm. The event, held at Coventry Central Library, will include readings, interviews conducted by our horror host, and a Q&A with the audience. Books will be available to purchase on the afternoon.
If you are planning on attending it would be helpful if you could email Michael@ThisIsHorror.co.uk with the subject line ‘Coventry Library Event’ so we can gauge numbers for what promises to be an incredibly popular event.
A huge thank you to Lee Davis for creating the stunning artwork and poster which accompanies this event.
