KM Katharine McMahon by Barbara Luckhurs


Virtual book club

As part of Watford Together, we  partnered with Sunday Times bestselling author and former Watford resident Katharine McMahon to unite the town through our love of reading. 

The scheme was recently picked up by BBC Radio 4, you can listen here!


The book chosen for One Town, One Book is McMahon’s latest novel, The Hour of Separation published by W&N.


Set in our very own Watford, and a fictional farm in Belgium during two world wars, it is a tale of human endurance, heroism and love, resonating powerfully with the challenges we are facing right now.   

We ran three very successful virtual book club sessions and a writer's workshop in July. 

We are looking at the possibility of holding more book clubs in the future - please keep an eye out for more information.
