Charity pop-up literary supper with Hannah Vincent, Brighton


The Preston Lawn Tennis Club presents a pop-up literary supper featuring readings and book discussion with author Hannah Vincent plus a literary quiz and a Christmas book sale.

Hannah Vincent‘s debut,  Alarm Girl, was published to critical acclaim in 2014. ‘A heart-rending tale’ (We Love This Book) and ‘compelling, beautiful and poetic’ (Bookgroup info), Alarm Girl is the story of a young girl coming to terms with the loss of her mother. Steeped in the dry heat of a South African summer, this keen and touching novel seamlessly interweaves the voices of Indigo and Karen, and beautifully captures the human desire to belong: in a family, in a country, in your own skin.

Tickets for the PLTC literary supper cost £15 and include a vegetarian supper, a signed copy of Alarm Girl, a fun quiz and a Christmas book sale. Contact Fiona McWilliam ([email protected]) to reserve a place and arrange to pick up your book (from Fiona or Myriad).
