Lucy Foley, author of The Book of Lost and Found, returns this year to discuss her second novel, The Invitation, set in the glittering world of film in 1950s Italy, yet haunted by the shadows of the Spanish Civil War.
Joining her will be Anna Hope, author of 2015 bestseller Wake, with her second novel, The Ballroom, set in the heat wave summer of 1911 in an asylum on the edge of the Yorkshire moors.
Join us for an afternoon of discussion and readings to learn how these acclaimed young writers have explored the darker side of human nature, yet crafted stories of love and renewal.
