HODDER and Stoughton's number one bestselling mystery thriller writer is paying a visit to Kendal Library.

John Connolly is celebrating 20 years as a published author in 2019, and this month sees the publication of A Book of Bones, the ultimate title in his Charlie Parker mystery thriller series.

John will talk about is epic new tome on Saturday, April 27 (7pm).

John says he loves doing bookstore and library events: "I’m hugely grateful that people still want to come out and listen to me, or have their books signed, after all these years. It’s harder on my bones that it used to be, and I find that I need a bit of alone time after events, particularly in the evenings, just to read or write, and recharge my batteries. But I never ceased to be amazed by the kindness of my readers, and the welcome they’ve given to these odd books, and to their slightly odd author."
