During June and July 2010, libraries throughout the Borough of Richmond will play host to a range of authors for public appearances.

International journalist, ghost writer to the stars and now multi-million selling author, Michael Robotham, is the highlight of a month of author appearances at local libraries this June and July.
The Australian writer is appearing as part of a week long UK tour to talk about his latest novel crime thriller Bleed for me, which follows a string of award winning titles. He will be at Twickenham Library on Wednesday 14 July.
Cllr Pamela Fleming, Strategic Cabinet Member for Community Development on Richmond Council, said:
“We have a strong line-up of award winning authors this June and July. Michael Robotham’s exciting background in journalism, ghost-writing celebrities’ autobiographies and his current success as a novelist, make his appearance a highlight.
“Our libraries will also be providing a full summer schedule of activities for parents and children, as well as the usual IT taster sessions, full library catalogue and internet access. There is also a range of services now online, so that you get the most out of what local libraries offer when it is convenient for you.”
