Manchester City and England Legend, David White at Urmston Bookshop

David is coming to Urmston Bookshop on Saturday 29th* April at 2pm for a question and answer session and to sign copies of his book Shades of Blue.

Shades of Blue tells the story of David’s extraordinary life: his passion for football, the drama of his games and his fight to outrun the shadow of the devastating abuse he suffered by his former coach.  Having spent years feeling that he had to conceal his secret in order to protect his father and his football career, it is only now that David has felt able to give a full and honest account of his life.

This event is free, contact us at Urmston Bookshop if you need any further information.

*Please note, due to match fixtures we have had to change the date of this event from the 8th April to the 29th April.

An Evening with Sarah Ward

Urmston Bookshop is delighted to announce that the critically acclaimed crime thriller writer Sarah Ward is coming to the bookshop on Thursday 2nd February.

Her brand new title A Deadly Thaw – ‘a rivetingly suspenseful mystery’ – is the second in the DI Francis Saddler series, set in the depths of darkest Derbyshire.  A man whose killer—his wife—was convicted 15 years ago is discovered recently murdered and the team must discover why his wife lied about her guilt all those years ago – and who was the person she actually killed?

Sarah’s first book In Bitter Chill was named as one of the Guardian‘s best crime novels, calling it ‘a genuinely intriguing Chinese puzzle box of a mystery’.  The Yorkshire Post describes Sarah as ‘perceptive and observant’ and a ‘natural born crime writer’.

Sarah will join us at the bookshop on Thursday 2nd February at 7pm.

Tickets cost £3.00; this includes a glass of wine and is redeemable against the            purchase of a book on the evening.

To book your tickets call: 0161 747 7442, email: or call in to the shop.
