Some of Britain’s best loved authors, writers and famous faces will be coming to Chorleywood next month to talk about their upcoming books.
As part of the events programme organised by the Chorleywood Bookshop, several evenings are going ahead at the store and the village’s Memorial Hall where avid readers can ask questions and find out more about some of this Autumn’s literary releases.
On November 6, TV’s Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick will be in the bookshop at lunchtime, signing copies of his new book, Beyond Supervet, which contains stories from his career as one of the country’s top veterinarians.
On November 8, historian and biographer Sir Anthony Seldon will be visiting the bookshop to discuss his new book The Path of Peace, detailing his moving pilgrimage along the route of the First World War’s Western Front.
Comedian and broadcaster Robin Ince will be appearing at the shop on November 10, to chat about his new book Bibliomanic, covering his tour of over 100 bookshops across Britain.
Talks from great fiction authors are also being held, with Rachel Joyce and S. J. Bennett appearing on November 14 and 22 respectively to promote their new books. Joyce will be discussing her third book in the Harold Fry trilogy, Maureen Fry and the Angel of the North, whilst S. J. will be talking about her cosy crime novel Murder Most Royal.
The Guardian’s foreign correspondent Luke Harding will also be in on November 21, with his new book Invasion, which is the first book of reporting from the frontlines in the terrible war in Ukraine.
Finally, former BBC Breakfast and current Channel 5 News host Dan Walker is in the village on November 28, to talk about his new book Standing on the Shoulders, about the country’s unsung champions.
Further information and tickets for all of these events (and others in the surrounding area) can be found at the Chorleywood Bookshop’s website.
