Marsali Taylor will be signing copies of her latest novel set in Shetland and meeting with the public at a special book launch on Thursday, December 2 from 6pm to 8pm.
Activities such as a quiz and a treasure hunt will also take place on the day to celebrate the book’s launch.
Murder mysteries set in idyllic backdrop of Shetland
Marsali Taylor said: “Cass’s latest adventure involves a host of young people as well as the usual characters – it was written during lockdown, and I was really missing my grandchildren and my visits to Aith School.
“It’s set around the Yules, and begins with Cass waking on Tulya’s Een to find little trowie footprints in the snow around her house.”
Library manager, Karen Fraser, said: “Marsali has launched nearly all her books in the library.
“She is one of our top lending authors and has an ever-growing readership beyond Shetland.
“It is really fitting that she is our first author to launch in the new space, as she has such a big connection with us.”
