Bestselling writer, Lisa Jewell is coming to you for lunch. Treat yourself to an hour of good books and good company - but the good food is up to you!
After the success of our first ever ‘Virtual Gliterary Lunch’ with Sophie Hannah, we are delighted to be bringing you best selling Lisa Jewell who will tell us about the inspiration behind her latest domestic noir, The Family Upsttairs. From the comfort of your own home, you can her ask questions and you can interact with fellow Gliterary Lunchers through the chat function.
Break up the routine of lockdown lunches and treat yourself for a Gliterary hour of good books and good company, although once again, we will have to leave the food and drink to you.
To join us simply email [email protected] and we will send you the crowdcast link.
Although the event is free for all, we will be encouraging further donations to the mental health charity MIND through our Just Giving page.
Lisa’s first novel, Ralph’s Party, was published in 1999. It was the best-selling debut novel of the year. Since then she has published another sixteen novels, most lately a number of dark psychological thrillers, including The Girls and Then She Was Gone (both of which were R&J Book Club picks). Lisa is a top 10 New York Times and number one Sunday Times author who has been published worldwide in over twenty-five languages. She lives in north London with her husband, two daughters, two cats, two guinea pigs and the best dog in the world.
‘I had an unrelentingly pleasurable and a thrilling for-God’s-sake-tell-me-what-happened sensation in my stomach for the entire read … Stupendous!’ Ruth Jones
In a large house in London’s fashionable Chelsea, a baby is awake in her cot. Well-fed and cared for, she is happily waiting for someone to pick her up. In the kitchen lie three decomposing corpses. Close to them is a hastily scrawled note. They’ve been dead for several days.
Who has been looking after the baby? And where did they go? Two entangled families. A house with the darkest of secrets. A compulsive new thriller from Lisa Jewell.
Wonderful event – it was an absolute tonic being in the company of the author and listening to her read her own work. Thank you! Will be recommending your lunches!
