Award-winning crime writer to take part in Glasgow’s ‘Book Swap Brunch’ event
An award-winning author of a popular thriller series will take part in a book swap event in the city center next month.
Glasgow-born Alan Parks has been widely praised for his novels which have been described by American writer Bret Easton Ellis as “gripping and violent, dark and satisfying”.
After winning this year’s prestigious McIlvanney Award, Parks is now gearing up to discuss her latest book, May God Forgive, with journalist Maggie Barry on Saturday, October 29.

Heather Suttie, founder of online book group Bookface, said: “Having Alan as a guest author is a real privilege.
“Fans will have the chance to ask him questions about his crime thrillers, listen to their stories and purchase a signed copy of his award-winning book May God Forgive.”
Parks is the latest in a long line of incredible authors to appear at the Book Swap Brunch held monthly at Glaschu restaurant in Royal Exchange Square.
Past guests have included Doug Allan, Lisa Gray, Guy Grieve, Helen Fitzgerald, Paul English and Sophie Gravia.
