FEB 18th: ‘POP-UP BOOKCLUB’: The Churchill Secret KBO with the author, Jonathan Smith

Pop-Up Bookclub event:

The Churchill Secret KBO by Jonathan Smith

Wednesday February 18th

7.30 in the bookshop


Join us for our first ‘pop-up book group’ event. These exclusive events will be by nature smaller than our usual talks, allowing customers more interaction with the author. Each time we hold one of these boutique book evenings we will ask the author to introduce his or her book and then the group will discuss it along with the writer. When you buy your ticket the book will be included in the price. You should come having read the book and with a few points to raise. It is an informal and fun evening with complimentary wine.
For our first evening we will be talking about Jonathan Smith‘s (author of Summer in February) new novel KBO: The Churchill Secret.
About the book: Nineteen-fifty-three is synonymous in the British memory with the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on 2 June. But less well known is what happened in 10 Downing Street on 23 June. With Anthony Eden vying for power, the elderly Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, must maintain the confidence of his government, the press and the public.But after a diplomatic dinner in which he is on typically sparkling form, Churchill’s Italian dining companions are rushed out of the building and his doctor called. The Prime Minister has had a stroke. Churchill is bedbound throughout the summer, and while secrecy agreements have been struck with leading newspaper barons, the potential impact of his health on public life is never far from the minds of his inner circle.With the help of a devoted young nurse and his indomitable wife, Clementine, Churchill gradually recoups his health. But will he be fit enough to represent Britain on the world stage?
