Author Joanna Glen will be visiting Mostly Books to talk about her brand new book, The Other Half of Augusta Hope on Wednesday 19th June as part of Independent Bookshop Week (IBW).
You're not lost, you're just looking..... Augusta Hope has never felt like she fits in.
At six, she's memorising the dictionary. At seven, she's correcting her teachers. At eight, she spins the globe and picks her favourite country on the sound of its name: Burundi.
And now that she's an adult, Augusta has no interest in the goings-on of the small town where she lives with her parents and her beloved twin sister, Julia. When an unspeakable tragedy upends everything in Augusta's life, she's propelled headfirst into the unknown. She's determined to find where she belongs - but what if her true home, and heart, are half a world away?
A stunning debut from a new author - one not to be missed!
The event will take place at Mostly Books. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Tickets are £5 and include a drink plus £1 redeemable off a copy of the book on the night. Available from Mostly Books or Eventbrite.
