    This week’s Book Club read is The Holdout. What happens when the jurors who found someone guilty of murder are brought back together for a Netflix series ten years later? Will they all remember the events in the same way? Will they all stand by the decision they made? Author Graham Moore joins Richard and Judy to explain how his own experience of being a juror on a murder trial influenced his desire to ask these questions.
    Broadcaster Clare Balding has also published a new book – Fall Off. Get Back On. Keep Going. – a non-fiction book looking at how to inspire and cultivate confidence in young children. Together, they all explore their own childhoods feeling like outsiders, and where their confidence in adulthood has come from.
