Novelist to write next book in shop window during SW11 Literary Festival

A best-selling novelist will be writing her next book in a shop window during this year’s SW11 Literary Festival which starts on September 17.

International bestseller Isabel Losada will be sitting in the window display Waterstones in St John’s Road all day, every day, for the first week of the festival.

Passersby will be able to see her writing her new book, reading, tweeting and meditating.

The author of The Battersea Park Road to Paradise will also be answering questions posted on Twitter and Facebook about being a writer throughout the week.

The window display will be specially designed to look like Losada’s home in Battersea Park Road.

Losada, who lives in Battersea, said: “As this is a literary festival I just wanted to make fun of authors a bit, as we have a reputation for being a bit stuffy. And obviously we don’t get out much.”

She added: “I’ll be doing everything I normally do at home – only in Waterstones’ window.”
