Joanna Trollope

After a sell-out event several years ago, bestselling author Joanna Trollope returns to Hungerford to talk about her new novel, City of Friends on Wednesday 12th April at 8pm in the Croft Hall.

city of friendsDescribed as one of the most insightful chroniclers and social commentators writing fiction today, Joanna Trollope's novels are enormously popular, but she served her time in obscurity before success finally came calling. She is quoted as once saying that, 'after twenty years of writing I became an overnight success.'

City of Friends explores the themes of friendship, success, failure and betrayal. City high-flyer Stacey is made redundant from her job as a Senior Partner at a top equity firm, an event which threatens not just her sense of identity but the fabric of her life. Retreating back into the safety of her close-knit group of female friends for comfort, Stacey discovers that they have problems of their own and when secret betrayals are unearthed, long cherished friendships are tested.

Joanna Trollope will be talking about 'City of Friends' before taking questions from the audience and signing copies.

Tickets, which cost £6 and include a glass of wine and money off the book on the night, are available from Hungerford Bookshop on 01488 683480 or online at www.artsforhungerford. com. To get ahead of the game and avoid the queues, why not buy your ticket and copy of City of Friends from the bookshop before the event and bring it along for Joanna to sign?
