Critically acclaimed and award-winning novelist M.J. Hyland will be at Chorlton Library on Monday 16 June for a unique book signing.
The author who has been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for her novel Carry Me Down will read passages from her work and discuss the inspiration behind them.
Councillor Mike Amesbury, Executive Member for Arts & Leisure at Manchester City Council said: "It is great for Chorlton that a writer of M.J. Hyland's calibre is visiting the local library and we look forward to seeing as many people as possible attending this interesting talk, offering an insight into the mind of a best-selling author."
He adds: "She may even have a few top tips for any budding writers out there!"
Manchester City Council runs a comprehensive programme of meet-the-author events and has recently welcomed Ed Glinart, author of the Manchester Compendium, and Keith Warrender author of Underground Manchester, to its libraries.
M.J. Hyland has been awarded the Hawthornden Prize and the Encore Prize for Carry Me Down, and has also received literary recognition for her first novel, How the Light Gets In.
