A Literary Lunch with International Bestseller

Joanne Harris

Broken Light

Thurs 18th May 2023

at Fylde Rugby Club, Lytham 12.30pm  (doors 12 noon)
Tickets £38 from the bookshop 
include welcome drink, 1 course lunch, authors talk and signed Hardback

We are delighted to be welcoming the internationally renowned and award-winning author Joanne Harris back to Lytham. Joanne is best known as the author of the bestselling Chocolat, which was adapted into a film with Juliette Binoche & Johnny Depp, and she was last in Lytham with a sold out event for The Strawberry Thief. She will be talking about her latest stand alone novel Broken Light.

Go As a River is set on a peach orchard in 1940s rural America. A majestic, beautiful coming-of-age story and a captivating tale of a young woman’s love for a mysterious drifter, where the landscape is as central to the book as its characters – a landscape that Shelley Read clearly knows in her bones.


Bernie Moon’s ambitions and dreams have been forgotten by everyone else – including Bernie herself. At 19 she was full of promise, but now facing 50 and going through the menopause, she’s a fading light.

Until the murder of a woman in a local park unlocks a series of childhood memories, and with them, a talent that she has hidden all her adult life.

What happens when the frustrations and power of an older woman are finally given their chance to be revealed?

Joanne Harris is the internationally renowned and award-winning author of eighteen novels, plus novellas, scripts, short stories, libretti, lyrics, articles, and most recently, a self-help book for
writers. She is an honorary Fellow of St Catharine’sCollege, Cambridge, and is Chair of the Society of Authors. In 2012 she became one of the elite group of authors to join the Platinum Hall of Fame – authors who have achieved a million sales of a single book in the UK and all of her subsequent novels have been bestsellers. She was awarded an OBE in 2022 for her services to literarture.

Come join us for what promises to be a fantastic event!
