Internationally best-selling novelist David Mark will be celebrating World Book Night at Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre.
David spent many years as a crime reporter before his debut thriller, Dark Winter, became a runaway hit.
It has since been translated into several languages and is being developed for TV. David will be discussing both his experiences as a journalist and his often surreal new life as a full-time author.
His third novel, SORROW BOUND, has just been released to great acclaim.
World Book Night is an annual celebration of reading and books which takes place on 23 April. It sees passionate volunteers give hundreds of thousands of books away in their communities to share their love of reading with people who, for whatever reason, don’t read for pleasure or own books.
It is run by The Reading Agency the charity with a mission to give everyone an equal chance to become a reader. Because everything changes when we read.
In the UK 35% of people don’t regularly read despite reading for pleasure being a globally recognised indicator in a huge range of social issues from poverty to mental health.
World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging those who have lost the love of reading – or are yet to gain it – to pick up a book and read.
