Best selling author Danuta Kot will be at North Bridlington library on Thursday, 17 October at 7pm, as part of this year’s East Riding Festival of Words.
Her book ‘Life Ruins’ combines haunting landscapes with a gripping plot, and Danuta will go through the influences that have have shaped ‘Life Ruins’, such as poverty, alienation, and social breakdown to produce a very modern crime novel.
Danuta Kot grew up with stories. Her Irish mother and her Polish father kept their own cultures alive with traditional tales they shared with their children. For many years, she worked with young people in Yorkshire who were growing up in the aftermath of sudden industrial decline.
She now works as a senior education consultant, work that involves travel to establish education and training in other parts of the world. She is a regular academic speaker at conferences and literary festivals, and has appeared on radio and television.
Tickets are available now at £5 each (plus booking fee) from www.festivalofwords.co.uk or by calling 01482 392699 (office hours only).
