TCR Presents: An Evening with Anna Hope and Mary Beth Keane

Thursday 5th September 18:30 - 20:30 at London - Tottenham Court Road

We are thrilled to present to you an evening with Anna Hope, ('Expectation') and Mary Beth Keane ('Ask Again, Yes') who will be in conversation discussing their fantastic new books.

What happened to the person you were supposed to become? And if asked to do it all over again, would you say yes?

Join Anna Hope and Mary Beth Keane to discuss two of the summer’s most anticipated novels: 'Expectations' and 'Ask Again, Yes'.

If you are not already excited enough, here is a bit about each book:

Hannah, Cate and Lissa are young, vibrant and inseparable. Living on the edge of a common in East London, their shared world is ablaze with art and activism, romance and revelry – and the promise of everything to come. They are electric. They are the best of friends.
Ten years on, they are not where they hoped to be. Amidst flailing careers and faltering marriages, each hungers for what the others have. And each wrestles with the same question: what does it take to lead a meaningful life?

'Profoundly intelligent and humane. Deserves to feature on many a prize shortlist' OBSERVER

Gillam, upstate New York: a town of ordinary, big-lawned suburban houses. The Gleesons have recently moved there and soon welcome the Stanhopes as their new neighbours.
Lonely Lena Gleeson wants a friend but Anne Stanhope - cold, elegant, unstable - wants to be left alone.
It's left to their children - Lena's youngest, Kate, and Anne's only child, Peter - to find their way to one another. To form a friendship whose resilience and love will be almost broken by the fault line dividing both families, and by the terrible tragedy that will engulf them all.
A tragedy whose true origins only become clear many years later . . .
