Guinevere Glasfurd will launch her second novel 'The Year Without Summer' at the Toppings Bookshop in Ely, outlining the Fen riots in 1816 and the global climate crisis.

A Toppings spokesperson said: "We're delighted to welcome Guinevere to Toppings in Ely for a thought-provoking and enthralling evening."

Guinevere will be attending the launch on Wednesday, February 12 starting at 7.30pm.
