An Evening with Zoë Howe

Thursday 2nd February 2017 6:30pm - 8pm Bond Street Chelmsford Literary Event, Music Event

Respected music writer and musician Zoë Howe will be introducing her rock ‘n’ roll love novel, Shine On, Marquee Moon with this evening of entertainment at our Chelmsford shop.


Shortlisted for the virginia Fiction Prize in 2016, Shine On, Marquee Moon exposes the hilarious, heart-wrenching and often bizarre reality of life on and off the road, where the most unlikely people become family, and ‘friends’ aren't always who they appear to be.

Women working behind the scenes in the music industry have, unfairly, received relatively little attention, but acclaimed music writer Zoë Howe believes it’s time for that to change. “To have a female protagonist in a rock ‘n’ roll story who isn’t a groupie or a fan is probably fairly unusual. I wanted to tell this story from the perspective of not just a woman who is connected romantically to a musician, but to a woman who is part of the crew. She isn’t in awe of the often glamorous world she finds herself in, she’s a creative and an equal to the people around her,” explains Zoë.

Louder Than War described this fascinating read as 'Bursting with ascerbic with and savvy truth-telling. A great debut novel'.

Join us for an evening of live music by Paolo Morena, conversation and enjoy complimentary wine and nibbles.
