Waterstones in Bristol are running a series of intriguing events and the latest Crime Night coming up at 7pm on June 18th with Mark Billingham and Martyn Waites (half of husband-and-wife team Tania Carver) looks really good. The guys at Waterstones tell me that Mark is a stand-up comedian in his spare time, and he and Martyn are an excellent double act. It should make for a really entertaining evening. Tickets £5, £3 to Waterstones cardholders.
The next day (Wednesday June 19th) they have two events off-site. The first is with children's author Melvin Burgess in the morning. This is a school event, so no public availability, but if anyone wants a signed copy of any of his books Waterstones can take requests and dedications.
That evening Charlie Higson will be at Bristol Grammar School. This is a public event. Tickets are only available through the school, not through Waterstones although they will be there on the night selling books, and are once again able to take dedications and requests if you can't make it. Detials of the event can be found here:
