Have your say

BESTSELLING American author RJ Palacio will visit Bury St Edmunds next month.

The author, who lives in New York, will be at Waterstones’ Buttermarket store in Bury St Edmunds on Tuesday June 12 at 7 pm for a talk and signing.

Philip Daws, the shop’s children’s bookseller, said: “I think it’s one of the most amazing books I’ve come across in the 14 years I’ve been at Waterstones. I’m very excited that RJ Palacio is coming to Bury St Edmunds — it’s a real coup for our store and the town.”
