Sunday 6th October 2019, 4.45-5.45pm
Robert Graves Gallery
Local author and patron of the festival Michelle Paver joins us to discuss her gloriously electrifying ghost story Wakenhyrst.
Best known for her internationally bestselling Chronicles of Darkness series for children, Michelle will be talking about the art of writing sophisticated ghost stories for adults and revealing the inspiration behind her latest spine-tingling thriller which spans five centuries. Widely regarded as a masterwork of modern gothic fiction, Wakenhyrst encompasses madness, mysticism, family enmity and the dangerous potential of an uncanny landscape told through the eyes of a brave and forward-thinking heroine.
“Irresistible storytelling... her finest novel yet.”
Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.
