Join Bookends for an evening with Galloway based author Karen Campbell as she discusses her latest novel ‘Paper Cup’, a heart-warming novel about how easy it can be to fall through the cracks, and what it takes to rebuild a life run off course. The event will raise money for Carlisle Key, a charity supporting young homeless people in the local area.

What if going back means you could begin again? Rocked by a terrible accident, homeless Kelly needs to escape the city streets of Glasgow. Maybe she doesn’t believe in serendipity, but a rare moment of kindness and a lost ring conspire to call her home. As Kelly vows to reunite the lost ring with its owner, she must return to the small town she fled so many years ago.

On her journey from Glasgow to the south-west tip of Scotland, Kelly encounters ancient pilgrim routes, hostile humans, hippies, book lovers and a friendly dog, as memories stir and the people she thought she’d left behind for ever move closer with every step. Full of compassion and hope, Paper Cup is a novel about how easy it can be to fall through the cracks, and what it takes to turn around a life that has run off course.
