Marking the first meeting of a new kind of book club, Hannah Vincent will read from and discuss her debut novel, Alarm Girl, at Read and Sip – an evening of informal wine tasting and book discussion at Brighton’s The Cyclist Refreshment Rooms.
Steeped in the dry heat of a South African summer, Alarm Girl is a keen and touching debut, seamlessly interweaving the voices of Indigo and her mother, and beautifully capturing the human desire to belong: in a family, in a country, in your own skin. We Love This Book describe Alarm Girl as a ‘sensitively written’ and ‘heart-rending tale of a young girl trying to make sense of her life while accepting loss and change.’
Tickets for Read and Sip cost £15 and include plenty of wine, accompanying snacks and a chance to hear readings from Hannah, as well as to discuss the novel with her and other guests. To book your place email: [email protected].
Copies of Alarm Girl are available at a 20% discount ahead of the book club event, via Myriad ([email protected]), City Books in Hove and Kemptown Bookshop.
