A best-selling page-turner by local author Clare Chambers has been chosen as the book for this year’s Elthamread.

 

Clare’s book, Small Pleasures, which mixes a wide range of themes, is set in 1950s South East London and Sidcup, and has captured the book-reading public’s imagination, having been serialised by BBC Radio 4.

Author Clare Chambers has agreed to become the Elthamread festival’s sixth guest writer, which in the past have included Booker Prize-winning author Bernardine Evaristo and Guardian columnist Lucy Mangan.
