Description


Meet JANE AUSTIN the author of NEWS FROM NOWHERE at Hull Central Library

Jane Austin was born in Liverpool and has worked as a French teacher and as a coordinator of Adult Education in Yorkshire.

Starting writing at 68, she believes passionately in creativity as a way of breaking down barriers and bringing people together.

News from Nowhere, Jane’s debut novel, is inspired by a collection of letters, written a century ago by three of Jane’s family, as they served on the Western Front during the First World War. News from Nowhere was shortlisted for a Cinnamon Press writing competition and published February 2017.

Jane lives in York.


“Well researched, well written novel with engaging characters.”



Read Regional is a celebration of brilliant new books from the North of England, which connect authors with readers in their local libraries. Founded by New Writing North in 2008 the campaign is funded by Arts Council England and is now produced in partnership with Hull Libraries and 22 other library authorities.

For the authors, Read Regional is not only an opportunity to meet readers and talk about their work, but also to celebrate the vitality of libraries as centres of creativity and learning for the whole community.
