Murder in the library or murder in a bookshop? If you’re a New Zealander – the choice is yours. Alan Carter will be launching his new book Marlborough Man at Volume on Wednesday 31 May. A day later, he’ll be at the Elma Turner Library with fellow crime writers Fiona Sussman and David Briggs as host Karen Stade cross-examines them on how they blend page-turning crime plots with fascinating characters and real-life themes.
Murder in the Library is brought to you by the Ngaio Marsh Awards, in association with the New Zealand Book Council and Nelson Libraries. It takes place on Thursday 1 June at 6 pm and is hosted by the Elma Turner Library, Halifax Street, Nelson.
