Hodder Proof Party

A unique opportunity to hear the authors of a trio of the most eagerly anticipated UK novels of the summer talk about their forthcoming books. Wiz Wharton’s Ghost Girl Banana draws on her experience as a mixed-race Anglo-Chinese child in Brixton. Speak of the Devil by Rose Wilding is a page-turning literary whodunnit. Rowan Coleman’s From Now until Forever is an epic genre-busting romance. All three novels are destined to be the most talked about books of the year.

Attendees will each receive special proof copies of all three novels to take home.
