SUGAR AND SNAILS BY ANNE GOODWIN – A READING/DISCUSSION AT FIVE LEAVES BOOKSHOP7-8:30pm,
FREE - Booking recommended, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call in to the shop.
In recognition of LGBT month, writer Anne Goodwin will be reading from and discussing her debut novel Sugar and Snails. The book takes a sensitive subject matter, handles it with all the force of a freight train and leaves behind nothing but a truly immersive reading experience. Taking place in both the present and the past, between the urban streets of Newcastle and the pyramids of Cairo, the story is one of startling honesty and emotional connections. It carries comfortably the mantles of literary and LGBT fiction but, at its heart, is nothing more or less than a superb piece of modern storytelling.
