This year the Doncaster Literary Festival, “Turn the Page” has been organised in a different way. We will not be just having a weekend to celebrate all things Literary; we will be celebrating throughout the year. We will be working in partnership with different organisations and authors to bring you a varied programme throughout the year.

Here are the events that are coming up on the programme:

Meet the Author Meet the Author

We’d like to welcome back crime historian Stephen Wade. His new book Murder in Mind is a selection of some of his favourite crime stories from the past, mixed with a memoir of growing up in Leeds. This fascinating talk will include references to some Doncaster stories, including that of his namesake, Stephen Wade, the hangman, and to more general tales, such as that of Jane Austen's aunt, who spent some time behind the walls of her local jail.

Don’t miss this great event. Join us at Central Library, Waterdale

Thursday 27th September 11am-12.30pm

You Missed a Great Event! You Missed a Great Event!

Here's some feedback from the Sarah Dunnakey Author Event -

Another great morning! Very interesting Many aspects of her writing – research – books to come!

Very Interesting talk. Lots of insight into how she came to write the book

Really enjoyable, insightful, interesting. Looking forward to her second book

There’s been a murder and it’s a mystery!

Our Central Library hosted a Murder Mystery Night performed by the Literacy Team on Tuesday 10th July. .It drew an audience of over 30 budding detectives who listened very carefully as the suspects read out their statements (only once) and were then grilled to determine who had the motive and the means to carry out the dirty deed. We had lots of lovely comments, like the ones quoted below. Also, Ann Cleeves, the author of the scripts and the popular Shetland and Vera crime novels now televised, liked and re-tweeted our tweet about the evening.

“Hello To Everyone, Thank to all involved in last night’s mystery evening. We enjoyed it even though we failed to solve who did it!!! Thanks for all the hard work, enjoy the sun while it lasts.”

“A fun evening. Thank you”
