SALLY PAGE and LIBBY PAGE – on writing, reading, friendship, and the stories we tell of ourselves.
How do we get to know one another? What is the role of stories in our lives?
In her debut novel, The Keeper of Stories, author Sally Page tells a story of people telling stories and thus gaining unique insights in the community and the world around them.
Sally is joined by her daughter Libby Page, also a writer. Maybe something in the name! Libby is the author of The Lido, published in more than twenty countries and currently being made into a film.
Both authors share a belief in the importance of finding a creative outlet whatever your age, a love of happy endings, and a passion for female friendship. Together, they will talk about their books, share their different publishing journeys, and explain the reasons why they believe we need uplifting stories, now more than ever.
