Events this week: Kilburn Library & Preston Community Library

Book readings at Kilburn Library & Preston Community Library

I’m delighted to announce that this Thursday 17 November I’ll be reading from my novel Are My Roots Showing? at Kilburn Library (6.30pm) and at Preston Community Library on Friday 18 November (1pm).

I’m so looking forward to meeting everyone and talking about the book, how I wrote it and about my Polish Yorkshire background. I’m donning my apron this morning to make some spiced Polish gingerbread, ‘pierniki‘ to bring down. ‘Pierniki‘ are around all year in Poland but most popular at Christmas. We had them a lot at home as I grew up so I hope everyone likes them too.

Many thanks to Sarah Smith (Libraries Development Manager) at Kilburn for inviting me and to all the volunteers at Preston Community Library too for arranging my visit, along with my agent Geraldine Cooke. Preston Library was closed in 2011, along with 5 other Brent libraries, but I’m delighted to say it is now the volunteer-run Preston Community Library. May it go from strength to strength.
