The launch of Gilly Macmillan’s debut novel, Burnt Paper Sky is TONIGHT!! We can’t WAIT to hear the Gilly in conversation with her editor, Emma, from Little, Brown. We know that there will be readings followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.
Preceding all this will be an incredible live band and a wonderful tombola (proceeds to the Bath Festival of Children’s Literature). What else? Unique, designer badges will be distributed to commemorate the event, and light refreshments will be available to all! What’s not to like?!
Burnt Paper Sky will be on sale, courtesy of Durdham Down bookshop, ready for signing by Gilly post-event.
