Fairy tales for Grown-ups with Jen Campbell

Jen_Campbell_BkWe look forward to welcoming vlogger and writer Jen Campbell to Ryedale to talk about the fairy tales that inspired her collection of short stories “The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night” and her recommendations for readers who are not so keen on the “happy ever after” endings! 

A darkly clever, beautifully written and deliciously twisted collection of modern fairy tales” Red

“Campbell’s entirely fresh reframing of classic fairy tales within modern experiences really got me thinking. The perfect autumnal read to curl up with” Stylist
