Dalston bookworms set to enjoy ‘Desert Island Books’ with best-selling author

Best-selling crime writer Mark Billingham is among the special guests appearing at a literary adaptation of BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs tonight (Thursday) as part of the launch of Dalston’s new library.

Critically-acclaimed novelist Richard T Kelly and local author Maggie Hamand will be joining Mr Billingham at the Desert Island Books event.

They’ll be revealing which books they’d take if they were stranded on a desert island.

The free event will be taking place at the Dalston C.L.R James Library in Dalston Lane at 7.30pm.
