Writing Grip-Lit: Emma Flint, Erin Kelly and Ali Land
Sat 27 May 2017, 12:00 – 13:00 BST
Writing Grip-Lit: Emma Flint, Erin Kelly and Ali Land, authors of three of 2017's most talked-about page-turners, in conversation
How do you take a story, perhaps stumbled upon in a newspaper or an archive, and spin it into a compelling page-turner – one that explores complex character and poses moral conundrums? The Baileys-Longlisted Little Deaths by debut author Emma Flint was inspired by a real missing person’s case in 1970s New York that scandalised the city. He Says, She Says by the bestselling author Erin Kelly examines a rape allegation and its reverberations. The protagonist of Good Me, Bad Me by Ali Land is the daughter of a serial killer living with a new identity - but can we ever escape our past?
Chaired by Sam Baker, editor of the-pool.com, a 2017 Baileys judge and author of The Woman Who Ran.
