To help celebrate IBW 2019 we have a evening with THREE authors. Libby Page author of the Lido, debut author Richard Roper interviewed by friend of the shop Caroline Smailes. Doors open 6.30 for 7PM start. The Lido Libby Page Rosemary has lived in Brixton all her life, but everything she knows is changing. Only the local lido, where she swims every day, remains a constant reminder of the past and her beloved husband George. Kate has just moved and feels adrift in a city that is too big for her. She's on the bottom rung of her career as a local journalist, and is determined to make something of it. So when the lido is threatened with closure, Kate knows this story could be her chance to shine. But for Rosemary, it could be the end of everything. Together they are determined to make a stand, and to prove that the pool is more than just a place to swim - it is the heart of the community. Richard Roper Something To Live For 'Tender, funny, compelling - this wonderful book deserves to be huge!' Lucy Foley, author of THE HUNTING PARTY 'Funny, moving and thought-provoking - I loved this.' - Clare Mackintosh, author of LET ME LIE 'A charming, humorous and life-affirming tale about human kindness that strikes a chord in a world where loneliness is a growing problem' BBC News Online, Top Fiction of 2019 'I completely fell under its spell. It pulls you in, makes you laugh and breaks your heart - in short, does everything that you want a novel to do. While it is very much in the David Nicholls' tradition of sympathetic quirk and comedy, it is, at the same time, so fresh and different. I loved the voice, the people, the world... Who couldn't? What an extraordinary debut.' - Gill Hornby, author of THE HIVE 'Heart-breaking. Hilarious. Life-affirming. Some descriptions of loneliness took my breath away. This book deserves to be HUGE!' Holly Bourne, author of HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW? 'Funny, moving and uplifting...I loved it.' Libby Page, author of THE LIDO Sometimes you need to risk everything... To find your something All Andrew wants is to be normal. He has the perfect wife and 2.4 children waiting at home for him after a long day. At least, that's what he's told people. The truth is, his life isn't exactly as people think and his little white lie is about to catch up with him. Because in all Andrew's efforts to fit in, he's forgotten one important thing: how to really live. And maybe, it's about time for him to start.
