Doors open at 7pm TOKE’S Wine Bar
Sue Cook invites the audience to discuss with author, Carol Drinkwater, her 2017 novel: A missing daughter; a desperate mother! Through a night of loss and horror, when a series of terrorist attacks bring Paris to a standstill, celebrated photographer Kurtiz Ross confronts her ghosts and discovers that the past of the octogenarian French actress Marguerite Courtney, who has befriended her, might hold the key to her own future. In telling Marguerite’s story, Carol draws on events in her own life thus unwittingly writing a precursor to the #MeToo media campaign.
