Thursday September 22nd - 7.00pm
An Evening with Alison Moore
£3. BUY TICKETS HERE
In 2012, Booker Prize shortlisted authors Alison Moore (The Lighthouse), and Tan Twan Eng (The Garden of Evening Mists) came to the Big Green Bookshop just 4 days before the Booker Prize was announced to read from and discuss their books. Those of you who were lucky enough to come to this will remember what an incredible evening it was.
And so it’s with enormous pleasure that we welcome back Alison Moore to the bookshop to mark the publication of her phenomenal new novel Death and the Seaside.
“With an abandoned degree behind her and a thirtieth birthday approaching, amateur writer Bonnie Falls moves out of her parents' home into a nearby flat. Her landlady, Sylvia Slythe, takes an interest in Bonnie, encouraging her to finish one of her stories, in which a young woman moves to the seaside, where she comes under strange influences. As summer approaches, Sylvia suggests to Bonnie that, as neither of them has anyone else to go on holiday with, they should go away together - to the seaside, perhaps”.
It really is a stunning book, and as with Alison’s previous books, the pace and control of the story is something very special. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Tickets for this event are just £3 (HERE), redeemable on any of Alison’s books on the night.
As a special deal (because our Book Group has chosen this for October’s meeting), if you buy a copy of Death at the Seaside before the event, you can get in for FREE! (just let us know you want to come and we’ll put your name down on the list).
This is likely to be a VERY popular event, so please book EARLY.
Hope you can make it.
