An independent bookshop in Letchworth is set to host an author event.

David's Bookshop is trying to reinvigorate its events programme after a year of lockdown.

The store in Eastcheap will be hosting a virtual evening with local author Kathleen Whyman on Thursday, May 27.

Kathleen will be talking about her novel Wife Support System.

A David's Bookshop spokesperson said: "This is the first virtual event that we will be holding at the bookshop after a year of lockdown, and we are delighted to welcome Kathleen for what will undoubtedly be a fantastic evening."

As well as being a novelist, Kathleen is a freelance journalist, Espresso Martini fan, and self-confessed knackered mum!

Wife Support System is an uplifting and hilarious story about what would happen if three women and their children shacked up together in a bid to alleviate childcare duties.

Tickets to the online event cost £4 and can be purchased from, over the phone or in the shop.
