The Schedule

Ali Smith – Heroines Lost and Found

The critically acclaimed writer Ali Smith will be in conversation with Erica Wagner, the consulting literary editor for Harper’s Bazaar, about how the notion of heroines is being reframed (and reclaimed) in contemporary women’s fiction. Smith’s 2014 novel How to be Both won multiple awards, including the Baileys Women’s Prize, while 2016 and 2017 saw her publish Autumn and Winter, the first two instalments (both Booker Prize-nominated) in a four-part series reflecting the state of Britain today.
Followed by book signing and refreshments from 12 to 12.30pm


12.30pm to 1.30pm

Magic and Realism: Jessie Burton in conversation with Tessa Hadley

The author Jessie Burton, whose debut novel The Miniaturistbecame an instant bestseller in 2014 and was recently adapted for a BBC television drama, will speak with the novelist and short-story writer Tessa Hadley, who is also a professor of creative writing at Bath Spa University. Whether set in the past or the present, in a world that is realistic or semi-magical, the pair will discuss how they bring their narratives to life through the creation of compelling, subtly drawn characters.
Followed by book signing and refreshments from 1.30 to 2pm


2pm to 3pm

How to Get your First Book Published

Hear from a panel of experts who will offer invaluable advice on how to get your manuscript in front of the right person’s eyes and ensure it stands out from the competition. Sharing their wisdom will be Alexandra Pringle, the group editor-in-chief of Bloomsbury, whose portfolio of authors includes Margaret Atwood, Esther Freud and Patti Smith, and the literary agent Karolina Sutton, who represents Atwood and Malala Yousafzai, among many others. Bazaar’s editor-in-chief Justine Picardie will host the panel.
Followed by book signing and refreshments from 3 to 3.30pm


3.30pm to 4.30pm

Elif Shafak – The Power of Storytelling: Liberating the Female Voice

The Turkish-born novelist, women’s rights activist and political scientist Elif Shafak, who campaigns for freedom of speech, will talk about the role of fiction in giving a stronger voice to women and minority groups. Shafak will explore why stories have a unique power to open up national and international conversations and will discuss both the political and personal context of her own work, including in her latest novel Three Daughters of Eve, a captivating tale of a young Muslim woman’s spiritual journey.
Followed by book signing and refreshments from 4.30 to 5pm
