AJ Pearce - You're Booked

This week we are delighted to present someone we've been attempting to lure into YB Towers for quite a while. It's AJ Pearce! We are huge fans of AJ, with Dear Mrs Bird being a previous Steal of the Week and perennial favourite, as was the equally wonderful sequel Cheerfully Yours. As you will hear, we are beyond excited to hear of a third instalment in the Emmy Lake chronicles, as AJ reveals a few tantalising nuggets about her new book. She also talks about books from the 30s and 40s, how a former You're Booked guest is her comfort read, her love of pony books and finding delight in the ordinary. Find out more about the books mentioned on the episode by visiting our bookshop.org shop. Sign up for the You're Booked newsletter by heading to: FurtherReading.Substack.com
