Visitors to Cambridgeshire libraries are being urged to book early for a bumper number of inspiring talks by best selling authors this month.

The popular visits are part of the ongoing programme of varied events in Cambridgeshire County Council Libraries where people can choose from over 700,000 books and get closer to their favourite author.

Journalist and author Martin Gurdon will be talking about his new book “Doing Bird” in Chatteris Library, Thursday 9 May, 2pm and Wisbech Library Friday 10 May at 11am.

Celebrated local author Midge Gillies is giving a talk on her latest book “The Barbed - Wire University” on Thursday 9 May, in Ely Library at 6.30pm.

Jae de Wylde, author of “The Thinking Tank”, will be at Central Library, Saturday 18 May, 11am - 12.15pm.

Christine May, Cambridgeshire County Council’s Head of Libraries said “This is another great example of the variety of events that take place across our libraries. We often welcome popular authors to our libraries and they are always popular events, whilst there you can hear first hand about their work whilst also browsing the shelves for a great read to take home.”

All of the above events are free, except Midge Gillies at Ely Library – tickets for which cost £5. Further information about the events can be found on or
