April Book Club with author Caroline Lea

May 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

We love Caroline’s work here in the shop and really enjoyed her talk with her editor last year and so this time are super excited to delve deeper into her new book Prize Women.

Based on the scandalous true story of The Great Stork Derby, Prize Women is a gripping and deeply moving novel about desperate choices and the two unforgettable women forced to make them.

It’s the 1920s, a time of unparalleled excess. But for the rich to party, the poor must starve . . . Into the city arrives pregnant runaway Lily di Marco. She has nothing – and expects nothing. But soon she will find herself in a towering mansion just streets away.  Confidante to, and best friends with, its glamorous owner Mae Thebolt. Until the competition. A childless millionaire leaves his fortune to the womanwho will have the most babies over ten years.

Is it an eccentric contest? Or a horrible joke played by a rich man on the poorest women of the city? Either way, it will tear Lily and Mae’s friendship – and their lives – to pieces . . .

Order the book here and use the code ‘BOOKCLUB’ to receive 15% discount.
