CLARE POOLEY – AUTHOR EVENT

CLARE POOLEY – AUTHOR EVENT

Please join us to celebrate publication of The People of Platform 5 by Clare Pooley on Tues 28th June. Clare is the author of The Authenticity Project which was published as the world locked down, but became a bestseller regardless – it was just the feel good tonic we all needed.

The People on Platform 5 reads like a Richard Curtis film in book-form – a distracting treat, packed with delightful characters you miss on turning the last page.

Nobody speaks to strangers on the train. But what would happen if they did? Every day at 8:05, Iona Iverson boards the train to go to work. Every day, she sees the same people and makes assumptions about them, even giving them nicknames.

But they never speak. Obviously. Then, one morning, Smart-but-Sexist-Surbiton chokes on a grape right in front of Iona.

Suspiciously-Nice-New Malden steps up to help and saves his life, and this one event sparks a chain reaction. With nothing in common but their commute, an eclectic group of people learn that their assumptions about each other don’t match reality. But when Iona’s life begins to fall apart, will her new friends be there when she needs them most?
