Hazel Prior: Away With The Penguins

Everyone loves penguins.  The success of Exmoor author, Hazel Prior‘s second novel Away with the Penguins is proof of that! Inspired by the adventurous spirit of elderly people, her concerns for the environment and, of course, penguins, it hit the number one bestseller spot in both audiobook and ebook, and was a Richard and Judy Book Club selection as well as a BBC Radio 2 Book Club pick.


Alongside her writing, Hazel is an enthusiastic and experienced harp-player, a passion reflected in her debut novel Ellie and the Harpmaker. She has promised to bring her harp to this session making it a wonderful opportunity to hear about life, love, grief, success, and penguins – with a lyrical accompaniment.
