Award Winning Author Robert Williams is to visit Oldham and Lees library.
Robert follows up the success of his prize-winning debut, Luke and Jon, with How the Trouble Started, a dark, gripping novel about childhood, morality and the loneliness of children and adults.
Told with Robert’s characteristic warmth, humanity and deceptively light touch, it is a story about how our best and worst intentions can lead us astray, and the moments we can never leave behind.
Robert Williams grew up in Clitheroe, Lancashire and currently lives in Manchester. His first novel, Luke and Jon, won a Betty Trask Award, and was translated into seven languages. It was hailed as ‘a hugely impressive debut’ by the Daily Telegraph.
He has worked in a secondary school library, as a bookseller for Waterstones, and has written and released music under the name, ‘The Library Trust’.
The events starts at 7pm on Thursday, November 8th at Lees Library, Thomas Street, Lees, OL4 5DA.
Admission is £2 for library members/£4 for non members. Places must be booked on 0161 633 5764.
