    Deborah Install is DrivenByWords

    For this episode of DrivenByWords we spoke to 'A Robot in the Garden' author Deborah Install. Alas, the Mobile Library itself was having its yearly service, so this was more of a case of NotDrivenByWords. Deb was kind enough to come to the Mobile Library Unit for the interview, where we learned about her favourite books, her experiences as a published author, and about her latest folly!

    John Connolly is DrivenByWords

    In this episode of DrivenByWords we were lucky enough to interview best selling author John Connolly. John was in Walsall to do an event for the 10th anniversary re-issue of his novel, The Book of Lost Things, and we managed to talk him into sitting down and swapping stories with us. Not only was it a fantastic event, it was a pretty special podcast too.

    Kit de Waal is DrivenByWords

    In this podcast we speak to My Name is Leon author, Kit de Waal. We took Kit out for a drive on the Mobile Library van to one of our regular, timetabled stops. Once we’d parked up, Gemma got out some cakes she’d promised us and we hit record on the Dictaphone. Find out about Kit’s love of libraries, her favourite books, and a little bit about her next book and why it’s currently untitled. Oh, and say hello to Fact Frog, making his first appearance in a DBW podcast.
