Event description

Description

We are embracing the long, dark January evenings with a discussion around new British gothic and folk writing. Waterstones Gower Street alumnus and regular host Alice Slater will host conversations and readings from three debut authors exploring new methods of exploring Scottish, Irish and Welsh landscapes.

Molly Aitken’s The Island Child is a powerful novel rooted in Irish folklore, loosely inspired by the story of Persephone. Lucie McKnight Hardy’s Water Shall Refuse Them channels the finest traditions of British folk horror to cast the Welsh landscape in an uncanny pagan light. And Francine Toon’s Pine is a tense, modern gothic novel set in the Scottish Highlands.

Join these writers as they read from their novels, and discuss their writing, inspiration and recommendations for the perfect winter reading.

Tickets are £10 / £8 Plus Cardholders and Students, and all include a glass of wine/soft drink. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
