April 10th - Wit, Waugh & insider dealing

We had such a great evening with Lesley Pearse - we spoke of David Bowie, Japanese sex workers,Sushi, the Kray twins and much much more. A pretty all rounded evening, I'd say!

The next event is on April 10th at the barn in Ditchling where we have Daisy Waugh reading for the first time from her new book - Melting the Snow on Hester Street. Daisy is the grandaughter of Evelyn Waugh and the daughter of 'Bron' Waugh - so writing is most definitely in her blood. She's also a journalist for the Sunday Times. Her book is set in the golden age of Hollywood and we meet Charlie Chaplin, Greta Garbo, Douglas Fairbanks and a couple that seem to have everything... Rich. Beautiful. Damned.

Aifric Campbell has written the most thrilling book - On the Floor. It's a dizzy whirl through the world of the stock exchange and Aifric was the first woman trader on the floor, so she writes from experience. Let's find out what a Dead Cat Bounce is.... and we'll talk of bankers and bonuses.

 As ususal there will be a warm welcome for you, a glass of wine and a fabulous supper. Tickets are from The Brighton Dome Ticket Office on (01273) 709709 Look forward to seeing y'all there - doors open at 6.45.

Frosty night but a sellout!

What a fantastic evening! It was a cold and frosty night but we had a full house in teh cosy barn in Ditchling. Though we were all chilled to the bone with scary readings from Julia Crouch (who revealed that a film of her first book CUCKOO published by Headline is in the offing)and we shivered when Tom read from his book SKIN & BONES published by Preface when he describes a massacre in a small village in East Sussex - very much like Ditchling. *Scream* But the tots of quince vodka kept our spirits high! Do join us for our next Book Lovers' Supper Club on February 27th with Sarah Rayner and best selling author Lesley Pearse, who has told me that David Bowie wrote a song about her (faints with excitement) Join us on Facebook - Book Lover's Supper Club or follow us on twitter @bookloverssupper to keep uo with all the news!
