Vivacity now has a new booking system so you can buy your tickets from any Peterborough library, not just Central Library and  Waterstones on Bridge Street will also have tickets for sale.

Experience Seventeenth Century England – fiction, fact, and food!
With Author Charlotte Betts and Re-enactor Lynda Carvell

Saturday 23rd March, 2pm
John Clare Theatre, Peterborough Central Library

Tickets available from any Peterborough Library and Waterstones Bridge Street

Join historical novel writer Charlotte Betts and re-enactor Lynda Carvell on a journey back to the 17th Century, with an afternoon of fact and fiction.

Charlotte’s latest novel 'The Painter's Apprentice' is set during the Glorious Revolution of 1688, a significant event in British history. She will talk about why she loves writing historical fiction and the extensive research involved. She will read from some of her sources as well as her novels.

Re-enactor Lynda Carvell will join Charlotte to reveal the realities of life at the time. She will demonstrate the clothes the book’s characters would have worn.

Both author and re-enactor will reveal lots of other fascinating details of life in the 17th Century – including recipes and cooking techniques, with a chance to taste a 17th Century biscuit!

Copies of Charlotte’s books will be available for purchase and signing.

'The Apothecary’s Daughter' (2011) won a number of awards.  'The Painter’s Apprentice' is her latest book.

World Book Night Author Event with Crime Writer S J Bolton
Folklore and Forensics: making sense out of the nightmare!

Tuesday 23rd April, 7pm
Peterborough Central Library
Tickets £5 (£4 concessions and reading group members)
Available from any Peterborough library, and Waterstones Bridge Street

Free prize draw included - great book giveaways!

Celebrate World Book Night with crime author S J Bolton. She will be speaking about how she became a writer and the particular sort of Gothic crime novel that has become her trademark.

Her new book is 'Like This For Ever':

Barney knows the killer will strike again soon. The victim will be another boy, just like him. He will drain the body of blood, and leave it on a Thames beach.
There will be no good reason for Lacey Flint to become involved . . . And no chance that she can stay away.

Face your darkest fears, but keep telling yourself it’s only fiction . . .

Copies of her books will be available to purchase and have signed.

S J Bolton is the author of five critically acclaimed novels. Her books have been shortlisted for several international awards, including the CWA Gold Dagger, and the Theakston's Old Peculier prize for crime novel of the year.
