Acclaimed British author Laura Lockington and American artist and sommelier Kristy Brooks discuss their weekly wine and literature picks, and marvel at the sometimes clashing viewpoints of their respective cultures. From Laura's kitchen in the small village of Artá, Mallorca they include tidbits, stories and other whimsical whatnots.
 
Book Lovers' Supper Club is a place to meet, eat and hear best-selling authors. We gather at The Barn in the village of Ditchling in East Sussex. Our visiting authors are interviewed by Laura Lockington. It can be serious, funny and irreverent...but always a fascinating look into the lives of writers. Find us on Facebook and Twitter.
