There have been some great films shown over Christmas on UK television and I thought The Miniaturist - in two parts - was superb, despite some of the nasty reviews I read today in the press.

One of the reasons why I particularly wanted to see it, was that I had read the book and spent a little time with the author Jessie Burton a few years ago where I was able to take a few photos.  I enjoyed reading her book and the storyline stayed in my memory; the film was also fascinating and I thank the Essex Book Festival for bringing Jessie as our guest author in 2015.  On this particular subject, we are preparing for the 2018 Essex Book Festival and shortly, the programmes will be displayed in all Essex Libraries, some have already arrived!
