Ooh! Top-drawer novelist to visit Story Cafe!

I’m pleased to announce that none other than the fabulous Graham Joyce will be coming to visit the Story Cafe on Tuesday September 30th.  This event is part of Leicester’s Everybody’s Reading festival, and will run from 10.00am to 12.00pm at Beaumont Leys Library.

You can’t beat learning at first hand about the craft of writing and the habits of the successful writer. Who better to impart these jewels of wisdom than local writer Graham? The prolific author of more than twenty novels has won many prizes and knows more than a thing or two about how to tell a good story and what it takes to succeed as a writer. The Story Café will throw open its doors to the public for this session, an unmissable opportunity for all would-be writers.
