Coles Book Club event - Thursday 23rd November @ 7.00pm - Jake Arnott - The Fatal Tree
This is our next 'Coles Book Club' event, an opportunity to meet the author of the book you've just read. We are offering our customers a title we've selected for you to read 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 some free reading notes along with your book to spark off the discussion!
Buy the 'Book Club' book for £8.99 either here online, or in the shop in Bicester, enjoy reading it and then come along to the bookshop on 23rd November and meet the author Jake Arnott for an evening of discussion. And of course, get your book signed by Jake on the evening - the book you buy from Coles is your ticket for the evening.
A little about the book: 'The Fatal Tree'
Newgate Gaol, 1726. An anonymous writer sets down the words of Edgworth Bess as she confides the adventures and misfortunes that led her all too soon to the judgement of London: Cruelly deceived, Bess is cast out onto the streets of the wicked city - and by nightfall her ruin is already certain. What matters now is her survival of it.
In that dangerous underworld known in thieves' cant as Romeville, she will learn new tricks and trades. And all begins with her fateful meeting, that very first night, with the corrupt thief-taker general Jonathan Wild. But it is the infamous gaol-breaker, Jack Sheppard, who will lay Romeville at her feet . . .
Drawing on the true story that mesmerised eighteenth-century society, the acclaimed author of The Long Firmdelivers a tour de force: a riveting, artful tale of crime and rough justice, love and betrayal. Rich in the street slang of the era, it vividly conjures up a murky world of illicit dens and molly-houses; a world where life was lived on the edge, in the shadow of that fatal tree - the gallows.
