Forum Books Presents Gavin Extence

Venue: The Chapel, Market Place, Corbridge, NE45 5AW


“It is, without doubt, one of my top reads of 2019… I’ve not had such an immersive and important read in a long time.” Carmel Harrington

“A sensitively-written, compassionate and heart-warming must-read for this summer.” Sarah J Harris


Forum Books are thrilled to welcome back to Corbridge – after five years and three bestselling novels! – the Richard and Judy Book Club author, and very good friend of the bookshop, Gavin Extence, who will be joining us to celebrate the arrival of his newest book, The End of Time.


Beneath the stars, on a stony beach, stand two teenage brothers.

They are wearing lifejackets that are too big for them and their most precious belongings are sealed in waterproof bags tucked inside the rucksacks on their backs. Turkey is behind them and Europe lies ahead, a dark, desperate swim away.

They don’t know what will come next, but they’re about to meet a man who does. He calls himself Jesus, the Messiah. He is barefoot, dishevelled and smells strongly of alcohol. And he doesn’t believe in chance meetings.

He believes he has information about the future – information that will change three lives forever . . .


An epic story of brotherly love, courage and resilience, The End of Time is going to be the most talked about book of 2019 and on everyone’s Must Read list for the Summer!

Join us, and Gavin, for a very special evening in conversation with his agent Stan, here at Forum Books, The Chapel, Wednesday 31st July. Doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Tickets are available now at £5.00 which includes a welcome drink on arrival. 

Tickets bookings are available from Forum Books, by phone on 01434 632931 or online via our Ticket Source website here.

See you soon!
