The talk will include behind the scenes information about which bits of life at Cambridge University really happened and what inspired Polly to write the book, as well as the ups and downs of writer life, where she gets her ideas from and her path to publication.

About 'The Reunion'

A chance to reconnect. A chance to get revenge.

Emily Toller has tried to forget her time at university and the events that led to her suddenly leaving under a cloud. She has done everything she can to forget the shame and the trauma – and the people involved. She has tried to focus on the life she has built with her children and husband, Nick. But events like that can’t just be forgotten. Not without someone answering for what they’ve done. When an invitation arrives to a university reunion, everything clicks into place. Emily has a plan. Because if you can’t forget – why not get revenge?
