Quotes from writers about Novel Nights
“Thank you, Grace, it was a very enjoyable evening, and Colette was lovely to talk with. You’ve got a good thing going there.” Tessa Hadley
“I loved being a guest of the Novel Nights event in Bath. The typical chaired event with an author plugging their latest work can often feel flat, but Novel Nights’ skill at framing a book discussion around wider literary themes guarantees a much more lively, engaged and illuminating evening. I enjoyed every moment of it.” Xan Brooks
