September is here! After months of sunny weather, we are looking forward to the start of cosy evenings and wintery walks. For us at the Causley Trust, our summer events and programmes are ending and a new line up for autumn is in the works. Read on for a look at what we have planned for the next month and into October …
North Cornwall Book Festival Author Tour with novelist Clare Chambers
Sunday 11th September, 7:30 pm, Eagle House Hotel in Launceston. Tickets: £8
Join us on the 11th September to hear all about novelist Clare Chamber’s latest book, Small Pleasures. The haunting yet funny novel was a word of mouth fiction hit in 2020 before making the Woman’s Prize longlist. Set in a manicured 1950s south London suburb, not far from where Clare and her husband raised their family, it’s the tale of a woman who claims to have had a virgin birth, and of Jean Swinney, the local journalist who becomes obsessed by her story. Described by the Evening Standard as “gripping, tender and perfectly formed” it saw Clare likened to Austen, Pym and Larkin and was unsurprisingly raced through multiple reprints in hardback.
Find out more about the book and Clare at our event, tickets cost just £8. You can secure your ticket via the Endelienta Arts website.
