Join us for an evening with Joanna Cannon, the bestselling author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, as she talks about her wonderful second novel Three Things About Elsie, a restorative, wryly perceptive story exploring memory, friendship and old age.

There are three things you should know about Elsie. The first thing is that she’s my best friend. The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better. And the third thing… might take a little bit more explaining.

84-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light; and, if the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly a man who died sixty years ago?

We were huge fans of ‘Goats and Sheep’ and are delighted to welcome Joanna to Booka for the paperback publication of Three Things About Elsie.

Tickets: £5 (redeemable against a signed copy of Three Things About Elsie). Includes a glass of wine / soft drink on arrival. Tickets available from the bookshop or purchase online with booking fee.
