11:00 AM - 12:00 PM  |  ZOOM

Lafayette Library and
Learning Center Foundation in partnership with Orinda Books


Clare Pooley

The Authenticity Project

In The Authenticity Project, Julian Jessop is an eccentric, lonely, septuagenarian artist who believes that most people aren’t really honest with one another. And so he writes – in a plain, green journal – the truth about his own life and leaves it in his local café. Before long, others find the notebook and add their own deepest truths before finding each other in real life at the café.

Clare Pooley graduated from Cambridge University, and then spent twenty years in the heady world of advertising before becoming a full-time writer. Pooley lives in Fulham, London with her husband, three children and two border terriers.
