TWO authors will be appearing at an Ilkley bookshop over the next few weeks.

Debut author Molly Aitken will be at the The Grove Bookshop, where she will be in conversation with with Emily Devane, from 7pm on Thursday, February 27.

Molly’s new book The Island Child, published by Canongate Press, tells the story of Oona and her journey to motherhood after leaving the island she has grown up on.

Haunting and rooted in Irish folklore, the book has been described as is a captivating work about identity, motherhood, freedom and fate - and the healing power of stories.

The event is free and some seats are still available.

Then on Friday, March 6 the shop will be holding a signing event with local writer Linda Green from 11am.

Linda’s latest book One Moment, about two strangers who end up changing each other’s lives, has been chosen for the BBC Radio 2 Book Club.
