Sam Rowlands MS supports Wrexham Carnival of Words

SAM ROWLANDS, Member of the Welsh Parliament for North Wales, is backing a launch event to promote a major literary event taking place in Wrexham next month.

Local author Sian Hughes, whose first novel Pearl was longlisted for the world-famous Booker Prize, will take part in a special launch event at Wrexham Library on Wednesday March 27 at 7pm to highlight the Wrexham Carnival of Words 2024 in April.

Mr Rowlands, a keen supporter of encouraging people to read more books said, “I am delighted to support this major annual event taking place in the city once again and pleased to see a local author helping to promote this wonderful literary festival.

“The launch night will enable people to get a taste of what is to come when the Wrexham Carnival of Words is held in the city from April 20 – 27 and will also highlight the continuing promotion of Wrexham as a destination venue.

“The festival will provide a wonderful opportunity, for those attending to meet with best-selling authors and learn more about their books and I would urge book lovers to attend this great event.”

The launch evening will also feature the announcement of the winner of the 2024 Murder Mystery competition. The winning script will be performed during the carnival week.

The announcement will be made by the Mayor of Wrexham together with million selling British crime novelist Simon McCleave. His first book, ‘The Snowdonia Killings’, reached No 1 in the Amazon UK Chart and his subsequent novels in the DI Ruth Hunter Crime Thriller Series have all been Amazon Best Sellers and many have hit the top of the UK Digital Chart.

He has sold over 2 million books since 2020. The sixteenth novel in the series is, appropriately, The Wrexham Killings. The Ruth Hunter Snowdonia books are currently in development as a television series.

The full programme has now been published at www.wrexhamcarnivalofwords.com and, among the myriad of authors taking part, are Joanne Harris, Catherine Isaac, Simon McCleave and Katy Watson, Suzan Holder, Mike Parker, Elen Caldecott and Vaseem Khan.

Tickets for all events can be booked online or obtained from Wrexham Library. The special Festival Ticket is available at an ‘early bird’ rate until the end of March.
