As part of Book Week Scotland 2020, Live Life Aberdeenshire is offering the opportunity to meet some of your favourite crime writers online and even ask them questions.

The event is an annual national celebration of books and reading and libraries across the country will bring author talks to readers and communities using various online platforms.

This will ensure audiences can still meet their favourite authors in a safe way, while restrictions on physical events continue.

Live Life Aberdeenshire Libraries have a fantastic line up of authors taking part in their virtual programme.

It runs from November 16-22 in a completely different format to the usual live author events that take place in Aberdeenshire.

Taking part in the event are

  • Theresa Talbot, a journalist, broadcaster and author
  • Douglas Skelton, a crime writer of fiction and non-fiction
  • Caro Ramsay, fiction crime writer
  • Shona MacLean, historical crime novelist.

Local authors Eric Davidson, a historical crime writer, and Jane Eddie, who published her first crime novel late last year are also taking part.

If you’re a fan of crime fiction and would like to submit a question for a specific author please email your question by September 21 to libraries@aberdeenshire.gov.uk

These will be added to a bank of questions be put to the authors during the recording of the virtual events.
