A special event for children and their families who are looking to be inspired by an award-winning children’s author, well known for her spine-tingling tales for young readers! Alex Nye, the award-winning author of CHILL and SHIVER, will be sharing the story of her third novel DARKER ENDS.

DARKER ENDS is inspired by the landscape and history of Scotland. This time Glencoe is the background setting, and the ghosts of the recent past mingle with the dark events of 1692, when the leader of Clan Campbell authorized the genocide of a whole community as they slept in their beds before dawn...Those who survived - women and children - struggled their way up into the lowering mountains of Glencoe, but what happened to them? Did they live to tell the tale?Two children, a brother and sister, wait in a lonely inn for their parents to come home, while a storm closes in...

Come along for a thrilling (and spooky!) hour in the company of an exceptional storyteller!
