Meet the author Sarah Butler – free online event

by Sandra Issar

Have you ever been curious about how a book makes its journey from an idea in a writer’s head to the shelves of a bookshop or library? Join Sarah Butler, author of ‘Jack & Bet’ (Picador Books) to find out about her writing life and journey to publication.

Whether you’re a budding writer or someone who just can’t get enough of new books, sign up for the first North West Novelists online event from Time to Read.

There will be time for conversation and questions. Plus BYOMP (Bring your own mince pies).

This free online event is at 1pm on Tuesday, 15 December 2020. Tickets are available now at Ticketsource.
