Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library will be marking the 100th anniversary of the First World War with a special author’s event during the week of Remembrance Day.

Best selling authors Anna Hope and Lissa Evans will be talking about their new releases at the Millennium Library on Wednesday 12 November at 2pm for an ‘Afternoon Tea and Conversation’ event.

People interested in attending are encouraged to book quickly, with the first 20 people to book their place being given a free copy of one of the books to pick up at the Millennium Library.

Winners of one of the free books will then be able to read it ahead of the afternoon, discuss the story with the author and get their copy signed on the day.

Both stories have a World War theme, with Lissa’s book ‘Crooked Heart’ set during the Second World War, telling the tale of the relationship between a WW2 orphan evacuee and his foster mother against the backdrop of the Blitz.

Anna’s debut novel ‘Hope’ is about three women awaiting the arrival of the Unknown Soldier after the Great War and the profound impact that the war had on each of them and their relationships.

Tickets for the ‘Afternoon Tea and Conversation’ event cost £2.50 and can be booked at the Sound and Vision Desk at the Millennium Library or by emailing norwich.admin.lib@norfolk.gov.uk. Winners can pick up their free copy at the Sound and Vision Desk.
