We are thrilled to welcome to Liverpool fabulously popular and best-selling author Ruth Hogan who joins us to read from and discuss her second novel The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes.
Masha's life has stopped. Once a spirited, independent woman with a rebellious streak, her life has been forever changed by a tragic event twelve years ago. Unable to let go of her grief, she finds solace in the silent company of the souls of her local Victorian cemetery and at the town's lido, where she seeks refuge underwater — safe from the noise and the pain.
But a chance encounter with two extraordinary women — the fabulous and wise Kitty Muriel, a convent girl-turned-magician's wife-turned-seventy-something-roller-disco-fanatic, and the mysterious Sally Red Shoes, a bag lady with a prodigious voice — opens up a new world of possibilities, and the chance to start living again. But just as Masha dares to imagine the future, the past comes roaring back…
Like her bestselling debut, The Keeper of Lost Things, Ruth Hogan's second novel introduces a cast of wonderful characters, both ordinary and charmingly eccentric, who guide us through a moving exploration of the simple human connections that make life worth living.
Ruth will be in conversation with author and journalist Hannah Beckerman.
