Thurs 25 March
1.00-2.00pm - author Ashley Audrain

But as soon as I held her in my arms I knew something wasn’t right. My husband Fox says I’m imagining it. He tells me I’m nothing like my own mother, and that Violet is the sweetest child. But she’s different with me. Something feels very wrong.

The Push is a 'poetic, propulsive read that set my nerves jangling in both horror and recognition’ LISA JEWELL, bestselling author of The Family Upstairs

This is Ashley's debut novel, written after leaving her job as Publicity Director at Penguin Books Canada to raise two children. Rights have been sold in 34 countries including for film and TV.

TopicUK editor Gill Laidler is a fan of Gliterary lunches "I have attended a couple of the events and received a signed copy of the well chosen books, it's a fabulous opportunity to hear from the author about the inspiration behind their books. I can recommend this event to any book lover and it's a great opportunity to network ahead of the lunch with other women."
