One Day I Shall Astonish the World, with Nina Stibbe in Conversation with Patrick Gale (at THE ACORN)
Thursday 6th July 2023
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Prize-winning author, Nina Stibbe makes a welcome return to the LitFest stage to discuss her latest novel – about the ebb and ﬂow of female friendship over half a lifetime. One Day I Shall Astonish the World tells the story of best friends Susan (never Sue) and Norma, and of the wonderful and sometimes surprising path their friendship takes: from its conspiratorial beginnings, along its irritating wrong turns, to its ﬁnal gratifying destination. As in all of Nina’s books, the everyday is made funny and often moving at the same time.
