Event description

Description

The John Rylands Library's inaugural writer in residence reads from her new novel for the first time.

This exciting evening event will include readings by Rosie from the unpublished manuscript, a Q&A session and a book signing.

Rosie feels an affinity with libraries and has chosen to set her new novel in The John Rylands Library in the 1980s. She has been writing the novel in the heart of The John Rylands Library, on the gallery in the Historic Reading Room.

If you have a question you’d like Rosie to answer in the Q&A session, feel free to email it in advance to: jessica.smith@manchester.ac.uk

Rosie Garland is an award-winning writer of novels, poems and short stories, and performer and singer with post punk band The March Violets. Her highly acclaimed novels include The Palace of Curiosities in 2013, followed by Vixen in 2015 and The Night Brother in 2017, which is set in Manchester in the late 19th and early 20th century. Val McDermid also recently selected Rosie as one of her top 10 LGBTQ writers in the UK.

This event has a limited number of spaces. If you make a booking and cannot attend, please cancel your booking so that we may offer the ticket to someone else.
