Launch event for The Ash Museum, by Rebecca Smith, 7pm online on Thursday 6th May 2021
P&G Wells is excited to present this exclusive opportunity to hear Southampton-based author Rebecca Smith talk about and read from her new novel, The Ash Museum.
Rebecca will be interviewed by our David Simpkins and there will be the opportunity for a Q&A.
Rebecca Smith was born in London and grew up in rural Surrey. From 2009 – 2010 she was the writer-in-residence at Jane Austen’s House in Chawton, Hampshire. The Ash Museum was inspired by her time there and by being left hundreds of old family photographs and letters.
Through ten decades and across three continents, The Ash Museum is an intergenerational story of loss, migration and the search for somewhere to feel at home.
‘In her luminous fourth novel, Rebecca Smith has managed to distil ten decades of a fractured family history into a resonant and tightly woven structure that takes us on an extraordinary journey. It is a memory bank of treasures and as much a moving story about the legacy of Colonialism as it is a reflection on contemporary life and values. Her wonderful perspectives and closely observed (and often, very funny) details about those lives, past and present, are a triumph.’ Christie Hickman, Books Editor, S Magazine
‘A beautifully written, multi-generational tale full of poignant themes, vibrant setting packed with observation and characters you will want to be friends with.’ Ella Dove, novelist and Commissioning Editor at Good Housekeeping, Prima and Red magazines
