BOOK NIGHT:THE AUTUMN OF THE ACE with Louis de Bernières & Kelly Falconer
A different format to our usual events, Book Nights will randomly offer five attendees to join the author and the host (with video), the rest of the audience will be muted but will be able to post or ask questions live.
Hosted by Kelly Falconer
The idea is to encourage reading and discussion of reading, and to end the night happier and wiser than when it began.
Louis de Bernières‘ new novel is a moving account of an extraordinary life in extraordinary times. This coming-of-old-age story illuminates both the effect of two World Wars on a generation and the irrepressible spirit and love that can connect people despite great obstacles.
Louis de Bernières is the author of eight critically acclaimed novels and one collection of short stories. He was selected by Granta magazine as one of the twenty Best of Young British Novelists in 1993. Captain Corelli’s Mandolin (1994) was an international bestseller and won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize.
