Nick Hornby & Kate Mosse New Hosts for Waterstone's Writer's Table
Nick Hornby, author of Fever Pitch and High Fidelity, and Kate Mosse, Orange Prize co-founder author of Labyrinth will host Waterstone's Writer's Table in 2009.
Launched in 2008, The Writer's Table allows its curators to reveal some of the books and authors that have shaped and influenced their writing.
"Our two Writer's Tables in 2008, with Sebastian Faulks and Philip Pullman, caught everyone's imagination and gave a real insight into what influences and inspires writers, and so we are very pleased to be continuing the Writer's Table into 2009, " said Toby Bourne, head of fiction at Waterstone's.
"We are extremely excited that Nick and Kate have agreed to choose the titles for their own Writer's Tables. We're looking forward to discovering an eclectic and thought-provoking selection of books from two of the nation's, and Waterstone's, favourite writers."
