Author Mike Gayle in conversation with his Editor, Nick Sayers.

St Francis of Assisi Hall, Kenilworth, CV8 1HL
Wed 3rd July 2019 6:30PM

To celebrate the release of his latest book, Half a World Away, we are delighted to be hosting both best-selling author, Mike Gayle and the editor with whom he has worked for over 20 years and through 15 novels!

Mike Gayle
was born and raised in Birmingham. He became a full-time novelist in 1997 following the huge success of his novel My Legendary Girlfriend. Fourteen books later, his most recent novel, The Man I think I Know, was bought by over 100,000 readers electronically and has also sold over 30,000 copies in paperback after its publication in June 2018. Half a World Away is out this June and reinforces his reputation as a great observer of human nature, and a wonderful teller of tales!

Nick Sayers
grew up in Coventry and Kenilworth, spent a short time teaching and then found his way into publishing. He has since worked with Phillipa Gregory, Tony Parsons, Bernard Cornwell, Stephen King and David Nicholls - among many others. He is one of the most experienced and respected editors in the British Book Industry and we are extremely pleased to be welcoming him back to the town!

This is an unusual opportunity to hear from both an accomplished author and a hugely experienced editor. Editors are rarely credited with the importance of their role, and we have long said that they should be celebrated far more than they are by the book industry. So we were delighted when Mike and Nick accepted our suggestion of sharing a platform to talk about Half a World Away.

The discussion will be chaired by bookseller, Tamsin Rosewell.

Entry token is £5 which can be redeemed against the purchase of a book on the night, which you can get signed and dedicated.

Tickets can be bought online (where there is a small booking fee), or in the bookshop.
