Sophie Masson's A Hundred Words for Butterfly launches this Wednesday night


Award-winning author Sophie Masson has produced her newest book, A Hundred Words for Butterfly, with Spineless Wonders Audio – and we can't wait to celebrate with a fun night of games, cocktails, readings and more!

Join us tomorrow, Wednesday 15th September at 6pm as we virtually launch this wonderful book that's already been receiving rave reviews.

It was meant to be the experience of a lifetime, for Australian twin sisters Helen and Alex Dorian, to walk the famous Camino from Saint Jean Pied de Port in the French Basque country, to Santiago del Compostella in Spain. But Helen injures her leg on the very day they arrive in Saint Jean and has to stay behind in the town while Alex goes on alone.

A disappointed Helen tries to make the best of things and keep up with Alex via phone calls and blog posts, but it’s not easy. But an unexpected meeting with Tony Garcia, an old schoolmate who is in Saint Jean to explore his Basque ancestral roots, begins to change things for Helen, as she and Tony investigate the mysteries surrounding his family’s past.

And then Alex goes missing…

A lively, thoughtful short novel by award-winning writer Sophie Masson, A Hundred Words for Butterfly explores family relationships and the past’s effect on the present, with a light touch and a vivid sense of place.

Special guests include Sophie Masson, voiceover artist Sarah Kennedy, and the winners and finalists of the #100Words4Butterfly writing competition.
