Meet the author event at Central Library - 17/05/17
Hull Central Library is to host an evening with award-winning author Shelley Day on Wednesday 31 May from 6.30pm, as part of the Read Regional campaign, giving people the chance to meet participating authors.

Readings and discussions will take place with Shelley Day, the author of The confessions of Stella Moon, an unconventional crime novel that takes us back to the late 1970s. Opening with the confession that she killed her mother, the story then follows Stella as she’s released from prison and returns to her former home to find she must confront the ghosts of the past if she’s to restart her life. Set in the North East, it is a dark brooding psychological tale with a twist!

Shelley Day was brought up in Newcastle and lives on the Northumberland coast. She is a lapsed lawyer, academic psychologist and research professor who now writes. Her award-winning short stories have appeared in magazines, newspapers and anthologies. In 2013 she was named as an Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature ‘emerging writer’ and read at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Shelley puts her dual legal and psychological background to good use in her fiction. Her debut novel The Confession of Stella Moon won the Andrea Badenoch Prize, was longlisted for the Bath Novel Award and shortlisted for the Dundee Book Prize. A collection of short stories, A Policy of Constant Improvement, won a Northern Writers’ Award and is due out in 2017.

This event is one of four taking place throughout the spring at Hull Central Library as part of the Read Regional campaign, giving people the chance to meet some of the participating authors from the North of England.

The event is free but a ticketed event. Booking can be made in person at Hull Central Library or by calling 01482 210 000.
