Worksop library is celebrating women’s writing with a Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction evening next week.

Three writers will chat about the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction live on stage at the library and there will also be the chance to take home a free book.

Hosting the night will be Sarah Ward, a crime fiction writer, reviewer and blogger, whose debut novel, In Bitter Chill, is set in the Derbyshire Peak District where she lives.

Also taking part will be Megan Taylor, a Nottingham-based writer whose first novel How We Were Lost was published by in 2007.

She is also the author of The Dawning, a domestic thriller set over the course of a single night, and The Lives of Ghosts, which tackles inheritance and motherhood.

The third member of the trio will be Aly Stoneman, a poet and poetry editor at Leftlion Magazine, who won the 2015 Buxton Poetry Prize and is a commissioned poet for the Lyric Lounge and Guardian Award-winning project Dawn of The Unread.

The event takes place on Tuesday, May 24 and tickets are £4 from the library.

The event is for over-18s only.
