We are delighted to welcome Jo Baker to celebrate her new novel, A Country Road, A Tree. Her last novel, Longbourn, examined the lives of the servants who silently keep the world of Pride and Prejudice afloat; it was deservedly popular for its fantastic storytelling. A Country Road, A Tree is, if possible, even better: a stunningly written fictionalised account of Samuel Beckett’s life in Occupied France during WWII. Come along to hear Jo on imagining the unspoken parts of lives around the edges of history, either fictional or real. This will be an unmissable event for all our customers who love thoughtful literature and beautiful prose.
