The Plan

Date: 6th October 2024

Time: 12 – 4pm

The Panel

First things first, we have to talk about our panel of guests. On the day we will be joined by author of the Glasgow Kiss series Sophie Gravia, Author of The Dog’s Share and (ex More Magazine editor) Fiona Gibson and author of the Chances Are series, Claire Duffy.

This will be a mighty discussion on strong Scottish female characters in fiction and we would love for you to get involved!

What to expect –

⚡️ a glass of fizz or mocktail on arrival to wet the whistles for all the chat.

⚡️ a delicious afternoon tea served on round tables, ideal for conversation. We will have a table plan created in advance so solo bookers and members (who make up the bulk of our bookings) can sit together and connect.

⚡️A Q&A with authors

⚡️Questions shared with each table about the book

⚡️The dusty book exchange- attendees will be invited to bring any books gathering dust on their bookshelves to swap

Who can attend

This event is open to all members and like-minded ladies who have a shared love of reading, chatting and cake!

More about Claire Duffy

Claire is a Glasgow crime, romance and romantasy author who is known as the Jackie Collins of Shawlands (mostly by herself). She was a screenwriter for over a decade until the film industry made her so bitter that she caught herself cycling past a production company giving it the finger. She quit, went to work in a pre school in Stockholm and wrote her first novel while her class of one-year-olds napped.
