The event itself was just super – Jessie was a great interviewee with tons of stuff to say about The Miniaturist, pressure, writing process, how The Muse came together, research and where things go from here…

My favourite part this time was the brilliantly creative clues some people left…

Yes, there will be another Book Club author interview and live event soon and even the one after that is in the planning!

For now, I’m doing these tonight and next week and all are welcome (must RSVP for the Liz Nugent one!)
