With Karin Altenberg, chaired by Jackie McGlone
Meet two exceptional writers whose evocative tales each hinge on a moment of searing drama. Karin Altenberg’s BREAKING LIGHT is set in 1950s Devon and features friends trying to offset the terror of bullies and the trauma of family secrets. Dea Brøvig’s debut, THE LAST BOAT HOME, conjures up dark mysteries within a home on the windswept southern coast of Norway.
Monday 15th September, 11am, £8
Lisa Jewell, the queen of emotional, thought-provoking, character-driven women's fiction introduces Dea Brøvig's THE LAST BOAT HOME, a devastating debut novel about sacrifice, survival and a mother's love; Hermione Eyre's debut novel, VIPER WINE, which takes a scalpel to the historical novel, rendering 1632 in Pop Art prose; and Andrew Clover's THE THINGS I'D MISS, an original, funny book about love, marriage and loss.
