'Coles Book Club' event - Thursday 30th March @ 7.00pm - Emma Kennedy - Shoes for Anthony
This is our next 'Coles Book Club' events, an opportunity to meet the author of the book you've just read.
We are offering our customers a copy of 'Shoes for Anthony' by Emma Kennedy and the chance to come along to the 'Coles Book Club' for an evening with the author - it's an opportunity to discuss the book with other readers, ask the author questions about the book, have a glass of wine and a general natter about books - just like a book club. We'll even supply you with free reading notes along with the book to spark off the discussion.
Buy the 'Book Club' book for the price of £7.99 either here online, or in the shop in Bicester. Enjoy reading it and then come along to the bookshop on 30th March and meet the author Emma Kennedy for an evening of discussion. And of course, get your book signed by Emma on the evening - the book you buy from Coles is your ticket for the evening.
A little about the book: 'Shoes for Anthony'
‘They’re running wild. Feral! If I had a shilling for every time a Scott Street boy said he was doing something when he was doing something else entirely I’d be living in Cardiff in a house made of Lardy cake. What did I say? Bad things will happen!’ The idea of the war coming to their small, impoverished Welsh mining village always seemed remote, but with one explosive event and the arrival of the Americans preparing for the invasion of France, the people of Treherbert find their world turned upside down. But war brings distrust, lies and danger. And as the villagers find themselves hopelessly divided, Anthony, an 11-year-old who hasn’t had a pair of shoes in years, is going to have to choose between what is popular and what is right.
Joyous, thrilling and nostalgic, Emma Kennedy’s Shoes For Anthony will have you wiping your eyes one moment and beaming from ear-to-ear the next.
