Now in their forties, Samantha, Lisa and Nicole are estranged, but decide to revisit their original hike in an attempt to salvage what they lost. As geography and history collide, they are forced to come to terms with the differences that have grown between them and the true value of friendship. Join Sally Piper, author of Grace’s Table, as she discusses her new novel, The Geography of Friendship. Books will be available for purchase on the night, or bring your copy from home for Sally to sign.  To reserve your place, visit Eventbrite, or phone the library.
