Every year the residents of Waverton make an award to the best British
debut novel published in the previous 12 months.
Best wishes to all our readers for the Summer. Good reading!
The next meeting, on Monday 19th September 2016, is the first meeting
of the 2016-17 season. The speaker will be Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble With Goats and Sheep.
Rachel Joyce (our winner in 2013) says of it: "
Part whodunnit, part coming of age, this is a gripping debut about the secrets behind every door". Don't miss Joanna.
The 2015/16 winner
Voting for the 2015/16 winner took place at the meeting on Monday 27th
