An Afternoon with Catherine Newman

Booka Bookshop
Church St
Oswestry, Shropshire SY11 2SP,

Join us for an afternoon with best-selling author, Catherine Newman as she talks about her new novel ‘Sandwich’.

One week in Cape Cod.

The perfect family holiday. What could possibly go wrong…?  For the past two decades, Rocky has looked forward to her family’s yearly escape to Cape Cod. Their rustic beach-town rental has been the site of sweet memories, its quirky furniture and mismatched pots and pans greeted like old friends.

Now, sandwiched between her children who are adult enough to be fun but still young enough to need her, and her parents who are alive and healthy, Rocky wants to preserve this golden moment forever. This one precious week when everything is in balance; everything is in flux. But every family has its secrets and hers is no exception.

With her body in open revolt and surprises invading her peaceful haven, the perfectly balanced seesaw of Rocky’s life is tipping towards change…

A huge favourite of Bookshop manager, Ruth along with her previous novel ‘We all Want Impossible Things’, which was selected for the Richard & Judy Bookclub. If you enjoy Marian Keyes and Nora Ephron, then this is the perfect event for you. A raucously funny novel with an unexpected punch.

Come along for ‘Bookchat’ and coffee ‘Upstairs at Booka’ and widen your reading horizons.

Tickets: £5 (redeemable against Sandwich)
