Four of Northumberland’s favourite authors enthralled a packed audience at a World Book Night event in Morpeth Library to celebrate reading.

Organised jointly by Northumberland’s library service and Greater Morpeth Development Trust (GMDT), the evening gave writers Caroline Roberts, Janet MacLeod Trotter, Lorna Windham and Deborah Court the chance to showcase their work as well as read extracts from their latest books.

Frank Rescigno, GMDT’s arts and culture director, is a nominated ‘book giver’ as part of World Book Night, which this year allowed him to give out copies of the novel Spring Tide – a Nordic thriller.
