Book launch: Behind the Mask is Nothing
Wed 17 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
Join Judy Birkbeck as she introduces and reads excerpts from her debut novel, Behind the Mask is Nothing:
How could anyone get drawn into a cult without realising?
Stef does. An overworked teacher, she questions her husband's fidelity, but is drawn into a community on a remote Exmoor estate run by the predatory couples counsellor. Meanwhile, her grandmother, who is writing her memoir about the Hitler Youth girls in Berlin with a mixture of guilt and nostalgia, looks on helplessly as Stef descends ever further.
A novel about the abuse of power - and the acceptance of this abuse.
Drinks and canapés to start, then the introduction and reading will kick off at about 19.00 hours.
