Also, as it’s a big birthday year we have lots of event plans, so make sure you’re following us on our social media and signed up to our newsletter.
The first event we’d like to announce is a great behind the scenes glimpse into the process of novel writing. We’ve got one of our best-selling authors, Caroline Lea, on a panel in discussion with her editor, Jill Taylor. Jill Taylor is Penguin’s Editorial Director, and works with authors such as Marian Keyes, Richard Osman. Caroline and Jill will be chaired in discussion by bookseller and illustrator, Tamsin Rosewell. Find out more here
As well as being our 55th birthday, this year is also the 50th anniversary of the Kenilworth Literary Society, so for some of our events we will be joining forces with them, to bring even more bookish power to Kenilworth!
