Eastbourne author Suzanne Joinson will about her latest book at Eastbourne Library next month.

The author of A Lady Cyclist’s Guide to Kashgar, Suzanne grew up in Eastbourne and will host the evening on April 18 from 7.30pm-9pm.

The book is a story about English missionaries and cycling in deserts in 1923. It is also about being lost in present-day London. There are seagulls and maps and an exploration of the fault lines that appear when the traditions from different parts of the world crash into each other, partly set in the downland of Sussex and Eastbourne.

Suzanne is described as a fascinating speaker, drawing on her experiences working across the Middle East and China, Russia and Europe, working with the British Council and, of course, growing up in Eastbourne.

There will be readings from the novel, a short interview and audience questions and Suzanne will be signing books after the event. Bookends, the new second hand book shop in Eastbourne Library, will be open with exclusive special offers on the night.

Doors open at 7pm and tickets are £3 per person to include a glass of wine.

Places can be booked on 0345 6080196.
