Susanna Clarke: Piranesi

Women’s Prize for Fiction Writer

Sunday 12 June, 4:30-5:30pm

Baillie Gifford Big Tent


An exclusive chance to hear from the winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2021.
This is the ONLY in person event Susanna Clarke has done and will do for her masterpiece Piranesi.

Susanna Clarke will discuss how to follow up writing an international phenomenon, her inspirations for Piranesi and how a quiet story of isolation published during the pandemic became fascinatingly relevant to all lives.

In conversation with award-winning author Katherine Rundell.

A pre-signed copy of Piranesi is included in the ticket price for this event (RRP: £8.99).

‘Clarke’s fantastical parable of solitude, imagination, ambition and contentment is a spectacular piece of fiction.’ Book of the Year, Guardian
