Book club returnees

What a great turnout last night, & terrific to see those faces which I thought had been lost to us, especially Louise & little Emma, our new book club baby who charmed us all last night with her blue eyes. That’s three babies now, but it was mentioned that if we read some more raunchy books then maybe we’d have a few more. I have high hopes of Lauren Owen’s gothic romp involving sex, adventure and horror, ‘The Quick’, our read for next month, and Lauren’s also appearing at the Durham Book Festival on October 11th from 3-4pm at Palace Green library, just £3 to book club members. Have a look here for more information…

I’m also chairing some events at the Durham Book Festival including Kate Adie, Kirsty Wark, Sheila Hancock, Linda Grant and Rachel Cooke so if you’re in the audience then please come up afterwards and say hello.  It’s always cheering to see a friendly face after staggering off-stage wondering if you’ve asked the right questions.

See you all on October 7th – garlic & crucifixes optional.
