Readers Group evening
Posted by alison at wakefieldlibraries
For May we have not just one but two exciting authors visiting us for an event.
Susan Elliot Wright and Sarah Stovell are visiting Pontefract Readers Group on Monday 12th May, 7 – 9pm. The evening will be held at Pontefract Library and if you would like to come along, please email the library on 01977 727692 to reserve a place.
The Things We Never Said by Susan Elliot Wright opens in 1964, when Maggie wakes and finds herself in a mental asylum with no idea of who she is or how she got there. Gradually she remembers…In the present, Jonathan is awaiting the birth of his first child. As the interwowen stories unwind, both make shocking discoveries about their lives. The book has gained a lot of positive reviews and Susan’s next book, The Secrets We Left behind, is out on 8th May.
Sarah Stovell’s book The Night Flower begins in the slums of 19th century Newcastle. A young gypsy girl is arrested for burglary and transported to Tasmania, where a fronter town is being built by convicts. On the journey, she meets Rose, a woman from a privileged background fallen on hard times. As the narrative weaves between the events leading to their arrests and their current situation we discover that, with one of them, not all is as it seems.
That’s my Easter reading sorted. Do join us on 12th May to meet Susan and Sarah and enjoy an evening with the Readers Group.
