Invite for families to meet author at Barnsley library

Have your say

Families are invited to Barnsley’s Central Library to meet local author David Peckett at a book launch.

He will be in the library from 10.30am on Saturday, May 16, where he will talk about his new book for children ‘The Bloodsucker’ and his writing career.

The book is based on David’s experiences growing up in Cudworth, which is the backdrop for the fictional tale.

He said: “I’ll be reading extracts from the book and telling people about how I started to write it. I’m hoping that people will come along to see how I’ve used my experiences from growing up in the area to write an adventure novel.”

The event is suitable for all ages and free to attend.
