A new book club is bringing you a brand new series of author events in iconic Liverpool venues. The Liverpool Book Club launches at Sefton Park Palm House on Wednesday March 22nd.
“The Squire of Knotty Ash and His Lady” is a special tribute event celebrating the life and talent of Sir Ken Dodd. Doddy’s biographer, Tony Nicholson, will be talking about the great man, and will be joined on stage by a special appearance of Anne, Lady Dodd.
Tony has been a lifelong Ken Dodd fan. His book gives Doddy’s many fans the first ever in-depth account of his astonishing story and will change everything you thought you knew about the fascinating, kind and complicated private person behind the comedy legend.
“The Squire of Knotty Ash and His Lady” is on Wednesday 22nd March 2023 7pm to 9m, Sefton Park Palm House.
“Murder on the Mersey” brings together two bestselling crime fiction authors, Luca Veste and David Jackson. The pair will be discussing all things crime in this must-see event for all crime fiction fans.
Luca Veste is a writer of Italian and Liverpudlian heritage. He studied psychology and criminology at university in Liverpool and is the author of the Murphy and Rossi series, set in Liverpool, which brings the city to life in a dark and terrifying manner … David Jackson is the author of eleven crime novels, including the bestseller CRY BABY and the DS Nathan Cody series.
“Murder on the Mersey” is on Thursday 23rd March 2023 7pm to 9m, Sefton Park Palm House.
Liverpool Book Club events are organised by Great Ideas Unlimited CIC, the not-for-profit organisation behind the popular Smithdown Litfest in south Liverpool since 2017.
Director Ian Skillicorn says:
“I was inspired to start The Liverpool Book Club by the fantastic response to the annual Smithdown Litfest. The Liverpool Book Club gives us the opportunity to invite even more authors to speak to audiences in Liverpool throughout the year.”
Everyone involved in running Great Ideas Unlimited events does so on a voluntary basis to give something to their community and to add to cultural life in Liverpool. All proceeds go to good causes both locally and internationally.
