    Meet the Authors: Road Trips & Rum with Brooke Davis & Emma Hooper

    12 Feb 2015 19:00

    Dulwich Books brings you Road Trips & Rum on Thursday 12th February when we host Australian author Brooke Davis and Canadian born Emma Hooper to discuss their debut novels. 

    We will begin with a cocktail of rum (or a glass of wine) before sitting down to hear Brooke and Emma chat about their books. We’ll finish with a Q&A before resuming the rum cocktails and sharing nibbles.

    Emma Hooper is the author of ‘Etta & Otto & Russell & James’ a debut novel about 82-year-old Etta leaving her Saskatchewan farm early one morning to walk 2,000 miles to the ocean she has never seen. ‘A love letter to my homeland, the Canadian prairies’ is how author Emma Hooper describes her début novel

    Brooke Davis is the author of ‘Lost and Found’ a debut novel that is already a best seller in Australia. It is the heart-warming, moving and joyful story of three lost people needing to be found. Millie Bird is a seven-year-old girl who always wears red wellington boots to match her red, curly hair. But one day, Millie’s mum leaves her alone beneath the Ginormous Women’s underwear rack in a department store, and doesn’t come back.

    Tickets are £10 which includes rum, a goodie bag of books, and nibbles – available from Dulwich Books in person, phone on 0208 670 1920, email dulwichbooks@yahoo.co.uk or online from http://dulwichbooks.eventbrite.co.uk/?s=32033232
