Author Event

We are delighted to welcome author Jess Kidd here to the shop to discuss her latest must-read novel, THE HOARDER, a BBC Radio 2 Book Club Choice. This wonderfully creepy, atmospheric novel is perfect to curl up with on dark evenings, ideal for Halloween!

Jess was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards 2016 and Shortlisted for the Authors' Club Best First Novel Award 2017 for her previous book 'Himself'.

This event will feature a Q&A as well as a reading from THE HOARDER which was featured on Simon Mayo's BBC Radio 2 Book Club.

This event will be held on Wednesday 24th of October

7pm at Far From The Madding Crowd

This is a free event so be sure to come along!
