Here is the link to the replay for those of you who missed the live broadcast.

You can’t come to us right now so we will come to you!  Why not join us for our first ever ‘Virtual Gliterary Lunch’ with one of our favourite authors, Sophie Hannah.

In the comfort of your own home, you can hear from Sophie Hannah as she tells us what inspired her to write her latest psychological thriller, Haven’t They Grown. We will invite you onscreen to ask questions or we can ask them on your behalf 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 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 donations to the mental health charity MIND through our Just Giving page.

‘For those who demand emotional intelligence and literary verve from their thrillers, Sophie Hannah is the writer of choice’.   The Guardian

The Book

All Beth has to do is drive her son to his Under-16s away match, watch him play, and bring him home.  She doesn’t have to drive past her former best friend’s house and risk dredging up painful memories, but she can’t resist.  She hasn’t seen Flora and her two children for  twelve years so she is intrigued when she glimpses them from her parked car.  But there is something terribly wrong.  Flora looks the same, only older – just as Beth would have expected.  But the children? Why do Thomas and Emily still look five and three? Flora calls them by their names, it is clearly them, but they are no taller, no older.  Why haven’t they grown?

Once again, Sophie takes an unlikely scenario and spins a plausible web of red herrings and subplots that leave you guessing to the end.
