‘Devoured’ by Anna Mackmin: Norwich Book Launch

June 14, 2018 - 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Anna’s debut novel, published by The Book Hive’s very own imprint, Propolis Books, has been described as “dazzling” (Stephen Fry), “wonderful” (Tim Pears), “brilliant” (Esther Freud), and “fascinating” (David Hare).

If you can’t make the London launch, why not join us for a (possibly even bigger) party at the Book Hive?! Along with readings from Anna – and plenty of drinks, of course – they’ll be an interview with the author (conducted by none other than Henry himself, the owner of the Book Hive and founder of Propolis Books). You’ll also be able to get your copy of the book signed, if you fancy.

This will be a very special night for the Book Hive and everyone involved in our indie publishing efforts. We look forward to raising a glass with you!

And, just in case you missed the blurb for Devoured…


Swallow’s Farmhouse in deep, rural Norfolk is home to Your People, a commune of free-thinkers and poets seeking a better way. But beneath the veneer of a nurturing, alternative lifestyle, an atmosphere of jealousy and threat is pushing utopia towards the brink of its inevitable collapse. 

Raising herself amidst the chaos is a twelve year old survivor, desperately preoccupied with her transition into womanhood. With her mute sister, beloved dog and the re-defining force of her emerging appetites, she marches resolutely towards her future, venturing – with hilarious and horrifying results – through the minefield of an adult world built on hypocrisy and misplaced ideals.

This event will be FREE. Doors at 6:30pm for a 7:00pm start.

Why not join the event on Facebook and let us know you’re coming?
