The Story of a Book: Dear Mrs Bird by AJ Pearce

Dear Mrs Bird is one of this year’s hottest debuts; it’s the delightful wartime story of aspiring journalist Emmeline Lake. It was conceived when author AJ Pearce found a 1939 edition of Woman’s Own. Join AJ, her publicist Camilla Elworthy, and agent Jo Unwin to trace the journey from initial idea to seven-publisher auction to the book itself.
