This event is part of the 11th Annual Booklovers Festival
For fans of Sharp Objects and Room, our festival book club read is heart stopping literary-thriller Call Me Evie, the story of a seventeen-year-old girl struggling to remember the role she played on the night her life changed forever. Its author J.P Pomare will join us to share insights into how and why he wrote it, the relationship a writer has with their reader, and will answer any questions you have after reading the book.
Whether you’re a book club aficionado or want to drop in for an author chat, this event promises to be a delightful evening. Cheese and wine provided.
