Join us at Looking Glass Books for the launch of LULLABY GIRL,
the shining literary debut from Aly Sidgwick
6.30PM, TUESDAY 16TH JUNE
Found washed up on the banks of a remote loch, a mysterious girl is taken into the care of a psychiatric home in the highlands of Scotland, Mute and covered in bruises, she has no memory of who she is or how she got there. The only clue to her identity is the Danish lullaby she sings...
Inside the care home, she should be safe. But, harassed by the media and treated as a nuisance by under-pressure staff, she finds the home is far from a haven. And as her memories slowly surface, the Lullaby Girl does her best to submerge them again. Some things are too terrible to remember... but unless she confronts her fear, how can she find out who she really is?
Taut, tense and mesmerising, Lullaby Girl is a shining debut from an exciting and very talented new author.
Aly will be reading from her novel, followed by a Q&A and a book signing. There will also be music from Scottish folk band CHERRYGROVE.
Cherrygrove are an innovative, six piece ensemble from Glasgow. They play traditional Scots music with a modern twist, all beautifully combined withthe vocals of Marianne Fraser.
