It’s going to be a bit of a summer of self-promotion with my novel, Owl Song at Dawn, coming out on July 1st.
If you can just come to one event, please make it this one, where I will be interviewing Kathy Lette about her novel, The Boy Who Fell to Earth, which was inspired by her autistic son. We’ll also be launching a film about The Memoir Garden, a poetry collection, which I compiled from the words and experiences of adults with learning disabilities. And my novel will be available too!
All ticket sales profits will go to Sunnyside Rural Trust – a social enterprise that offers work training for people with learning disabilities. I am one of their patrons. It’s a cause I feel very strongly about because only 6.6% of adults with learning disabilities have any form of paid employment. During uncertain times, you can do something positive by supporting Sunnyside – and all by showing up at a fabulous art deco venue for a great night of literary conversation!
Date: Sunday July 3rd
Ticket prices: ranges from £7.50-£13.
To book: please call Rex Berkhamsted Box Office 01442 877759
Location: Berkhamsted is 28 minutes on the train from London Euston; trains run every 15 minutes until late.
I will be hosting a private drinks party afterwards, so if you do book tickets then please get in touch and I’ll send you further details.
I do hope to see lots of you there.
