Discover the life and work of one of the pioneers of British noir crime fiction at an author talk staking claim for the Humber’s place and influence on British crime writing.
Nick Triplow, author of the acclaimed biography of Ted Lewis - Getting Carter: Ted Lewis and the birth of Brit Noir will join forces with Nick Quantrill, fellow author, cofounder and director of the Hull Noir Festival, for an afternoon of readings and discussion.
The event will celebrate Ted Lewis’ novel, Jack’s Return Home and its adaptation as the British noir film classic, Get Carter, plus Lewis’ novels Plender and his final novel GBH, set on the Lincolnshire coast.
Part of an ambitious three-year Arts Council England funded creative programme, the talk is one of many events set to bring a new chapter to the cultural offer of the Albert Room at Cleethorpes Library.
This promises to be a great talk for those who love crime fiction, for people who celebrate the creativity of our region and for those fascinated by the glimpses of local society and history in these dark and gritty dramas.Sandra Rawlings Development Officer, Lincs Inspire Libraries
The event takes place on Thursday, 25th August from 2:30pm in the Albert Room at Cleethorpes Library
There will be an audience Q&A and a chance to buy copies of the books discussed.
