Event description

Description

Don’t miss the latest event in our book club Live series, when we invite two acclaimed writers to chat about their work, live on stage at the library. This event takes us overseas as we hear from two authors whose work is set in different countries and spans different times. How do the authors bring places, communities and characters to life in their writing? What research is involved? What inspires them to tell these stories? Join us for an evening of fascinating conversation, featuring:


Kerry young is the author of Pao, Gloria and Show Me a Mountain – all set in Jamaica. Pao was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award, the Commonwealth Book Prize and the East Midlands Book Award. She is Honorary Assistant Professor in the school of English at The University of Nottingham and honorary creative Writing Fellow at The University of Leicester.


Stephan Collishaw is the author of The Last Girl, Amber and The Song of The Stork, all of which are set in Eastern Europe. The Last Girl was chosen by the Independent on Sunday as one of its Novels of the Year. In 2004, Stephan was selected as one of the British Council’s 20 best young British novelists.
