Description

Join us for an evening with author and vlogger Jen Campbell, to celebrate the publication of her collection of short stories, The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night.


About the book:

Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night

Spirits in jam jars, mini-apocalypses, animal hearts and side shows.
A girl runs a coffin hotel on a remote island.
A boy is worried his sister has two souls.
A couple are rewriting the history of the world.
And mermaids are on display at the local aquarium.

The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night
is a collection of twelve haunting stories;
modern fairy tales brimming with magic, outsiders and lost souls.
