Novelist Louise Candlish will read from her newly released psychological thriller, ‘Our House’, take part in a Q&A and sign copies of her book at Herne Hill’s Park’s Edge Bar & Kitchen.  

While Our House is set in a suburban landscape that appears to be not dissimilar from the leafy, local environs of SE24, it is no surprise to find the author is herself a resident of Herne Hill.  Kicking off a brief series of bookish events at the modern British eatery, the reading will be Louise’s first appearance on home turf to talk about her new bestseller.

The evening will be hosted by 30-year veteran Herne Hill resident, Patrick Roberts, who will probe Louise on the inspirations behind her unique characters, the places and events that the book depict. 

Park’s Edge Bar & Kitchen has joined up with local bookseller, Herne Hill Books, to provide copies of Louise’s book for purchase and signing on the evening.

Speaking on the upcoming event, Louise said: ‘I can’t wait to chat to fellow South Londoners about Our House. It’s an honour to take part in the first literary event at Park’s Edge.’

Full event tickets including wine and light plates prepared by Park’s Edge chefs are available at £29 from (doors open from 6pm).  Tickets for the 7.45pm reading are £9.50.
