Afternoon Tea with Author AJ Pearce
By Hungerford Bookshop

Join us for a splendid afternoon tea with author AJ Pearce in the gorgeous Blandy's restaurant at Audley Inglewood. The author will be chatting about her third book in the Emmie Lake Chronicles, Mrs Porter Calling, to owner of Hungerford Bookshop, Emma Milne-White.


Book your tickets here.

Mrs Porter Calling is a heart-warming, heart-wrenching new wartime story from The Sunday Times bestselling author of Dear Mrs Bird, AJ Pearce. Emmy Lake is the much-loved agony aunt at Woman's Friend magazine, relied upon by readers across the country as they face the challenges of life on the Home Front. With the problem page thriving and a team of fantastic women behind her, Emmy finally feels she is Doing Her Bit.

But when a glamorous new owner arrives, everything changes. As the Honourable Mrs Porter tries to charm her way around the rest of the team, Emmy realises that she plans to destroy everything readers love about the magazine. With happiness quickly turning to heartbreak and war still raging in Europe, will Emmy and her friends find the inner strength they need to keep keeping on - and save the magazine they love?

Expect delicious sandwiches, cakes and sweet-treats, plus tea and coffee, as well as a good chat about her book and writing. Afterwards she will be happy to answer questions and sign copies; and if it is a beautiful day feel free to buy a glass of wine and wander out on the terrace. Sounds like a very jolly way to spend an afternoon indeed!
