Sugar and SnailsIn recognition of LGBT month, accomplished short story writer Anne Goodwin, will be reading from and discussing her debut novel Sugar and Snails.

The book takes a sensitive subject matter, handles it with all the force of a freight train and leaves behind nothing but a truly immersive reading experience. Taking place in both the present and the past, between the urban streets of Newcastle and the pyramids of Cairo, the story is one of startling honesty and emotional connections. It carries comfortably the mantles of literary and LGBT fiction but, at its heart, is nothing more or less than a superb piece of modern storytelling.

final-design-LGBT-2016-JPGSugar and Snails takes the reader on a poignant journey from Diana’s misfit childhood, through tortured adolescence to a triumphant mid-life coming-of-age that challenges preconceptions about bridging the gap between who we are and who we feel we ought to be.

Praise for Sugar and Snails “An absorbing, clever and heartening debut novel.” – Alison Moore, author of Booker-shortlisted The Lighthouse
