In November 2017, Boston Library entered a book display competition run by The Reading Agency and Hodder Books to win an author visit by David Mark.
Alison Wade, Boston Library Manager, said ‘I was thrilled to find out that our display was the winner and had been chosen by David himself. '
‘The event was held on the evening of Thursday 22nd March 2018 and was very well attended. Everyone agreed that David was a very entertaining and fascinating speaker, who shared with us the ups and downs of becoming a published writer. He spoke about the difficulties of finding a literary agent and a publisher for his early work and described the long process of writing and rewriting a draft until it is ready for publication. He answered questions, including some from a couple of budding writers in the audience and then signed books – not library books I hasten to add!
‘Everyone commented that they had thoroughly enjoyed the evening and we hope to hold similar events very soon.’
