Essex Book Festival invites members of book groups from across Essex to discuss the novels of two of the county's up and coming writers. Join us for author readings by our writer-in-residence Sarah Perry, author of the acclaimed The Essex Serpent and debut novelist Beth Underdown whose new work, The Witchfinder's Sister promises the untold story of Matthew Hopkins. The event promises scintillating discussion, a chance to meet other avid readers and an opportunity to share your passion about books with others. There will also be an opportunity to find out how The Reading Agency can support book groups. Although aimed at book groups, this event is open to all. Spaces are limited, so book early. @SarahGPerry @bethunderdown @readingagency
