Dinner & Conversation With Iain Banks – Review


Bestselling author Iain Banks was a huge hit when he came to speak in Huddersfield on 27 April 2012.

The novelist, who shot to fame with the publication of The Wasp Factory in 1984, has had huge success with mainstream novels such as The Crow Road and Complicity as well as SF novels, including the Culture series.

During his ‘In Conversation’ with Michelle Hodgson of Key Words, in front of an audience of more than 50 diners, he talked about his career as a writer and his latest mainstream novel, Stonemouth.

He also signed books (supplied by Waterstones, New St) for fans at the event.

The feedback after the event was excellent; an enjoyable and interesting evening with one of our best British authors.
