Burn How Hotel Book Club Evening

Come and join us for our first ever Book Club Evening, come and meet author Suzanne Snow and fellow readers


Suzanne Snow is a Lancashire-based writer, born in Southport, who was shortlisted for an award by the Romantic Novelists’ Association for her first book, The Cottage of New Beginnings. She’s now working on a series of Love in the Lakes books for publishers Canelo.

The first meeting of the book club will be at the hotel on the evening of Wednesday March 22 2023 at 7pm. Burn How said: “The Lake District has the finest tradition of writing in the whole of the country. We are surrounded by the heritage of great writers from the past, and we have so many modern writers setting their books here. And when you’ve read a book you love, isn’t it great to have the chance to talk about it with other enthusiasts.”

Suzanne writes contemporary and uplifting” fiction with a vibrant sense of setting and community connecting the lives of her characters. She has previously  worked in financial services and retrained as a horticulturist to plant redesigned gardens.

“I’m so thrilled to write contemporary romantic fiction. It’s a joy to  create characters who fall in love, like so many of us do, and to write  about their lives in beautiful settings with lively communities at their  heart.”

And she’s delighted to be visiting the Burn How as she’s a great admirer of the garden landscaper Thomas Mawson, who created the original garden at the hotel in Bowness.

The Burn How has a strong literary tradition. Vicky Robinson, wife of the proprietor Michael Robinson, has for many years chaired the Lakeland Book of the Year awards.
