Prize-winning author Juliet West heading back to Chichester for library’s celebration of books

Juliet West

Prize-winning author Juliet West, who graduated from Chichester University, is heading back to the city for an event and book signing.

Juliet will be at Chichester Library on Thursday 19 October at 7.30pm as part of West Sussex Library Service’s “Talk about reading” celebration taking place across all libraries throughout October.

Those in attendance can hear about Juliet’s new novel The Faithful — said to be a gripping love story which follows the lives of two very different families in the years running up to the Second World War. Set in Sussex and London, the book explores the turbulent 1930s, revealing how women were recruited to Oswald Mosley’s notorious Blackshirt movement.

Juliet West grew up in Worthing and studied history at Cambridge University and trained as a newspaper reporter before going on to work for newspapers and magazines in Dorset, Hampshire and London.

The Faithful

In 2009 Juliet took an MA in Creative Writing at Chichester University, where she graduated with distinction and won the Kate Betts’ Memorial Prize.

As well as a short talk and a reading, Juliet will answer any questions people may have about books, writing and getting published.

Tickets £5, available from Chichester Library, Tower Street, PO19 1QJ — for more information call 01243 777351
