Beth Kempton’s We Are in This Together Acquired by Piatkus

We are all facing uncertainty in our daily lives due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, but author Beth Kempton has brought together her experience and expertise to create a guidebook on surviving the pandemic. World English language rights to We Are in This Together were acquired from Caroline Hardman by senior commissioning editor Jillian Young at Piatkus. The ebook is set to be released on 14 May.

We Are in This Together focuses on ‘finding hope and opportunity in the depths of the pandemic’ and is a ‘practical and inspiring compass for navigating these turbulent times’. The book is an inspiring compass for navigating these turbulent times, moving from resistance to resilience, to take care of yourself and your family in the chaos.

During the pandemic Beth and her husband have partnered River Cottage chef Steven Lamb and his wife Elli to create Slow Life Good Life an online hub to keep you motivated, well-fed and healthy, featuring a wide range of contributors from chefs to pseronal trainers. Proceeds from the hub will go towards feeding families and supporting rural businesses affected by the crisis.
