On 20th January I will be reading from THE GOOD OFFICER at FinnBrit Language Centre in Helsinki
I’m visiting Finland this week for the Helsinki Book Fair. It all starts tomorrow, but I arrived here early to have time to visit my father in Tampere, but also to finalise plans for a literary evening at FinnBrit language and culture centre in Helsinki. On a chilly day, when an early snowfall had been forecast, I was offered coffee and a warm welcome by Harriet Lindeberg-Saapunki in FinnBrit’s beautiful offices on Fredrikinkatu.
FinnBrit is a 90-year-old organisation which encourages cultural exchange between Finland and Britain. They teach English as a foreign language and are the only authorised examination centre for IELTS in Finland, as well as centre for Cambridge English Language Assessment examinations. On top of this, FinnBrit organises social activities, such as a regular book club, parties and other get-togethers.
I’m delighted that I’ve been invited to read from my latest novel, The Good Officer, and to talk about life as an author in London, with FinnBrits on 20th January 2017. If you are in Helsinki that day, come and say hello!
I will also sign copies of my novel, and all the books in The Englishman series will be available to buy at the FinnBrit centre.
