AJ Pearce, author of YOURS CHEERFULLY, in conversation with Janet Skeslien Charles - a virtual event
AJ Pearce, author of Dear Mrs Bird and YOURS CHEERFULLY, the continuing story of Emmy Lake, is our featured guest in Boswell's virtual event series. For this event, Pearce will be in conversation with Janet Skeslien Charles, author of The Paris Library.
London, November 1941. Following the departure of the formidable Henrietta Bird from Woman's Friend magazine, things are looking up for Emmeline Lake as she takes on the challenge of becoming a young wartime advice columnist. When the Ministry of Information calls on Britain's women's magazines to help recruit desperately needed female workers to the war effort, Emmy is thrilled to be asked to step up and help. But when she and best friend Bunty meet a young woman who shows them the very real challenges that women war workers face, Emmy must tackle a life-changing dilemma between doing her duty and standing by her friends.
"Endearing, poignant, and relevant, this uplifting novel is a treat!" says Janet Skeslien Charles.
AJ Pearce studied at the University of Sussex and Northwestern University. A chance discovery of a 1939 women’s magazine became the inspiration for her international bestseller, Dear Mrs. Bird, the first novel in The Emmy Lake Chronicles series. Janet Skeslien Charles is author of The Paris Library and Moonlight In Odessa.
