Rachel Wood, Founder of Rare Birds Book Club is set to host her first book launch event in collaboration with Sunday Times bestselling author Mhairi McFarlane. The event celebrating the launch of ‘Don't You Forget About Me’ is set to take place on Thursday 25th April from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at Custom Lane in Leith, Edinburgh.

‘Don't You Forget About Me’ began with four words. I love your laugh x. But that was twelve years ago. It really began the day Georgina was fired from The Worst Restaurant in Sheffield (© Trip Advisor) and found The Worst Boyfriend in the World (© Georgina's best friends) in bed with someone else. So when her new boss, Lucas McCarthy, turns out to be the boy who wrote those words to her all that time ago, it feels like the start of something. The only problem? He doesn't seem to remember Georgina - at all...

Rachel Wood, Founder of Rare Birds Book Club comments, “Rare Birds Book Club is all about celebrating great fiction and stories by women and about women so I cant tell you how excited we are to be launching our first author event.

“I’m a huge fan of Mhairi’s work so being able to work with her on this and create an event with a really engaged audience is so exciting. Attendees will be able to mix and mingle with other members of the club over a drink or two and join the chat about reading, writing and the ins and outs of Mhairi's fifth novel.”

Championing Women’s Literature, Rare Birds is a book subscription service founded on a simple principle: books should be fun to read. This bold new book club selects only the very best pacey, interesting stories with gripping plotlines, amazing heroines, happyish endings, and – when the occasion calls for it – totally smouldering love interests, making it the perfect launch platform for this author.

Tickets

£6

Launch copies of Mhairi’s new book will be available to purchase on the evening.
