20/02: Jane Shemilt "Little Friends"
We're delighted that, on the day of release, Jane will be joining us at Redland Library to introduce her new book Little Friends.
Described by bestselling author Lucy Foley, as "Utterly gripping and almost unbearably tense", Little Friends asks what happens to the children when the adults are misbehaving? With the eeriness of gothic horror and the suspense of the best thrillers, it's Jane's eye for the minutia of domestic life and the tensions of every relationship that slowly cranks up the pressure and raises the hairs on your neck.
Jane will be reading from Little Friends, answering our questions and yours, and signing copies of her new book.
Day: Thursday 20th February
Venue: Redland Library, Whiteladies Road
Tickets: £3 (redeemable on purchase of a book)
