An Evening with Kate Sawyer

We are thrilled to have Kate back in our shop to discuss her latest book 'This Family'- A lyrical, exquisitely constructed exploration of the complex bonds of family set across one summer's day as Mary's relations gather for her wedding. Now out in paperback. 
 
'This house. This family.
 
Mary has raised a family in this house. Watched her children play and laugh and bicker in this house. Today she is getting married in this house, with all her family in attendance.
 
The wedding celebrations have brought fractured family together for the first time in years: there's Phoebe and her husband Michael, children in tow. The young and sensitive Rosie, with her new partner. Irene, Mary's ex-mother-in-law. Even Emma, Mary's eldest, is back for the wedding - despite being at odds with everyone else.
 
Set over the course of an English summer's day but punctuated with memories from the past forty years of love and loss, hope and joy, heartbreak and grief, this is the story of a family. Told by a chorus of characters, it is an exploration of the small moments that bring us to where we are, the changes that are brought about by time, and what, despite everything, stays the same.'
 
Kate will be in conversation with one of our booksellers and there will be a chance for audience Q&A plus a book signing to end the night. Ticket price includes a glass of wine or soft drink equivalent. We hope you can join us.
