Rooftop Book Club


Rooftop Book Club

As you may well have guessed by the number of my book reviews on my blog, I like to read. I don’t get as much time to do this as I’d want (who does?) but when I can, I like to curl up on the sofa, in bed or preferably by a pool and read a really engaging novel.

I also love looking down from high places. You may also have guessed by my travel photos, taken at the top of tall buildings.

This leads me on to Rooftop Book Club. A genius idea hatched by Headline Publishing.

Yesterday in the UK was a scorcher. Temperatures in London were over 30 degrees. Perfect weather to visit the beautiful roof garden at Carmelite House, the home of Headline Publishing and hear from some fabulous authors.

I’ve been to Rooftop Book Club before and met the wonderful Tasmina Perry, Jo Thomas and Stella Newman. All who write beautifully and I thoroughly enjoy their books.

Last night’s event boasted different, but equally fabulous authors in the shape of Sheila O’Flanagan, Sarah Vaughan and Tracy Rees. I wasn’t very familiar with the last two ladies’ writing, but after hearing about the plots, how the characters came about and seeing the passion they had for their novels, I’d love to add their books to my reading list.

Rooftop Book Club is a really lovely way to spend an evening. The authors talk about their lives, inspiration and their novels. You sit back, immerse yourself in their words, enjoy your surroundings, accompanied by a glass of wine or two.

The after the event, you can meet the authors and ask them to sign your books.

It’s lovely to hear from people who I admire so much and find out what makes them tick. Plus it’s such an intimate setting, you feel privileged to be part of the event.

So next time you are looking for an evening of culture out in London, why not look for a Rooftop Book Club event?

You can find out more details about their events from their twitter page.

      I know, reading is such a time hungry pastime. It’s lovely to get lost in a book though isn’t it? I was very fortunate to meet such wonderful authors who I admire.

  3. Oh wow I love to read and dream of being part of a book club! This sounds fabulous and what a fab idea to have it on the rooftop, what a view from up there I imagine! #lifelovinglinkie

      You should start your own Laura. I have some friends who I share books with. We always discuss them – at length.
