This event has now taken place.

Husband not paying you the right kind of attention? Children left home? Job a nightmare? Then this funny, warm and honest debut novel from Denise Welch is required reading. If They Could See Me Now has attracted glowing reviews from the likes of Marian Keyes and Martina Cole.

The former Loose Women panellist is one of the most familiar faces on our screens after appearing in Coronation Street, Waterloo Road and Celebrity Big Brother. The TV star is also the author of two Sunday Times bestselling autobiographies. Denise has a well-documented battle with clinical depression. Quitting alcohol helped her recover, when she also quit Loose Women in 2013, returning to her first loves – acting and writing. If They Could See Me Now is a novel about following our own hearts.

Denise will be interviewed by Peter Guttridge, novelist, critic and co-director of Books by the Beach.
