Description: <p>Warwick’s will host&nbsp;Anne Youngson&nbsp;as she discusses her new book,&nbsp;<a href=”″>The Narrowboat Summer</a>, in conversation with&nbsp;Caroline Bleeke.&nbsp;Anne Youngson&nbsp;is retired and lives in Oxfordshire. She has two children and three grandchildren to date. Her debut novel,&nbsp;<a href=”″>Meet Me at the Museum</a>, was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award.</p>

<p>Eve expected Sally to come festooned with suitcases and overnight bags packed with everything she owned, but she was wrong. She arrived on foot, with a rucksack and a carrier bag. &quot;I just walked away,&quot; she said, climbing on to the boat. Eve knew what she meant. Meet Eve, who has left her thirty-year career to become a Free Spirit; Sally, who has waved goodbye to her indifferent husband and two grown-up children; and Anastasia, a defiantly independent narrowboat-dweller, who is suddenly landlocked and vulnerable. Before they quite know what they’ve done, Sally and Eve agree to drive Anastasia’s narrowboat on a journey through the canals of England, as she awaits a life-saving operation. As they glide gently – and not so gently – through the countryside, the eccentricities and challenges of narrowboat life draw them inexorably together, and a tender and unforgettable story unfolds. At summer’s end, all three women must decide whether to return to the lives they left behind, or forge a new path forward. Candid, hilarious, and uplifting,&nbsp;The Narrowboat Summer&nbsp;is a celebration of the power of friendship and new experiences to change one’s life, at any age.</p>
