Join us for an #InConversation double bill with authors Caroline Hulse and Richard Roper. Both authors use humour within their writing, but also write powerfully and poignantly about growing up and the novels present a very honest vision of the world. They will be talking to us about their latest novels All the fun of the fair and When we were young.
All the fun of the fair by Caroline Hulse is a hilarious, incredibly relatable, deeply poignant and genuinely powerful coming-of-age novel. Set in the summer of ’96, it has a warmth to it and a strong sense of nostalgia. It will plunge you into a different and much simpler time, when your biggest worry was a dodgy haircut that would make you the talk of the classroom for a day or two…
When we were young by Richard Roper is a quirky, tender, funny and moving story about the bittersweet highs and lows of growing up – from the author of Something to live for.
