Norwich Writers' Circle

Debut Novel by Christopher Woodall

Congratulations to NWC member Christopher Woodall on his debut novel launch of 30TH November.

Norwich Writers’ Circle would like to congratulate member Christopher Woodall on the launch of his debut novel November, held in Jarrolds Book Department.

Over sixty people, including family and friends, filled the space enjoying wine and nibbles before hearing a presentation by Christopher followed by a book signing.

November has been ten years in the making; springing from a single, at first seemingly inconsequential, year-long encounter with a group of factory workers in France in 1976.  There is an extensive cast of diverse characters, their stories interwoven within many sub-plots, the narrative exploring poverty, friendships, and prejudice.  November has been described as ‘complex, deep and rewarding’.

Both Chairman Phyllida Scrivens and Committee member Gill Blanchard were there to support Christopher on his very special evening.  Christopher’s book, published by Dalkey Archive Press, is available at Jarrolds and from Amazon.
