Recently awarded an MBE for services to literature, internationally critically acclaimed writer Kate Atkinson is here to read and talk about her stunning new novel, Life After Life.
One wintry night in 1910, in the middle of a snowstorm, a newborn baby named Ursula Todd, dies. But Ursula Todd also lives, and proceeds to live an unusual life, growing and dying repeatedly. Playing on the concept of time and fate, Atkinson explores the darkest corners of fate, parallel lives, and the power of destiny. Full of subtle characterisation and profound drama, Life After Life is another captivating read from this witty and compassionate author.
It’s sure to be a sell-out event, so book your seat as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!
