It’s been a bookish last week at Fairfield Books. We’ve run two of our bookclubs (Adult and Kids) and hosted the fabulous Dervla McTiernan at our first Sunday Stories for the year and now we aim to complete the trifecta with our first Opening Pages. It’s going to be a cracker of an event with Kirsten Alexander and Kate Murdoch talking about their new books. Riptides is an absolute page-turner based on the premise that one bad decision can tear your world. In this case the decision is leaving the scene of a car accident. Set in Queensland, set in the 1970s, an earlier version of this book was shortlisted for the Bellwether Prize by PEN America and is a great read. Kate Murdoch was a painter before turning her hand to writing. The Orange Grove is her second book and is deliciously set in 1705 in a chateau in France. The perfect escapist read for everyone who is finding 2020 all a bit much. Come join us for a lovely chat with two fabulous authors and raise a glass or two to their new books and what is shaping up to be a fabulous year of reading!
