THE inspirational writer, Amanda Brooke, will be visiting Culcheth Library on Tuesday, February 20.

Amanda, from Liverpool, began writing when her young son was diagnosed with cancer.

She recorded her family’s difficult journey through poetry and in a journal.

When her son Nathan died in 2006 at just three years old, Amanda was determined that his legacy would be her inspiration to continue with her writing career.

Her first novel ‘Yesterday’s Sun’ was published in January 2012 and was selected for the Richard and Judy Spring Book Club List.

Amanda's story ‘The Affair’ is going to be the Culcheth Book of the Month – to be launched on the night of the author's visit.

Strategic library manager, Wendy Molyneux, said: “We are delighted to welcome our Book of the Month author Amanda Brooke to Culcheth library.

“She draws on her life experience to create an emotional journey for the reader, so we know we are going to share a fantastic evening which will give a great insight into the life and career of this inspirational woman.”

Amanda’s new book ‘The Bad Mother’ is due to be published on February 22.

Tickets for an evening with Amanda Brooke at Culcheth Library are £2.50 and the event begins at 6.30pm.

Refreshments are included and tickets are available from all of LiveWire’s libraries.
