Join us for an evening with Beth O'Leary, author of The Flatshare to celebrate her new book The Switch.Eileen is sick of being 79. Leenas tired of life in her 20s. Maybe its time they swapped places...When overachiever Leena Cotton is ordered to take a two-month sabbatical after blowing a big presentation at work, she escapes to her grandmother Eileens house for some overdue rest. Eileen is newly single and about to turn eighty. Shed like a second chance at love, but her tiny Yorkshire village doesnt offer many eligible gentlemen.Once Leena learns of Eileens romantic predicament, she proposes a solution: a two-month swap. Eileen can live in London and look for love. Meanwhile Leena will look after everything rural Yorkshire. But with gossiping neighbours and difficult family dynamics to navigate up north, and trendy London flatmates and online dating to contend with in the city, stepping into one anothers shoes proves more difficult than either of them expected.
