Join us for a very special event with young adult stars Kat Dunn and Sarah Underwood as they chat about the ancient curses haunting their novels, the influence of myth and fairy tale, and crafting aching romances. Chaired by friend of the bookshop, Joel Rochester (@fictionalfates), this event is guaranteed to leave you ready to race home and binge your copies of Bitterthorn and Lies We Sing to the Sea.

In her latest novel, bestselling author Kat Dunn takes us into the seductive world of Bitterthorn, a dark and seductive gothic romance. With an ancient curse, a monstrous Witch, and a terrifying secret, Bitterthorn is sure to become your favourite gritty fantasy of 2022. Kat is also the author of multiple acclaimed YA books including the dazzling historical adventure series Battalion of the Dead.

Rising star Sarah Underwood introduces her immersive debut novel Lies We Sing to the Sea, a sapphic epic inspired by Greek mythology. You will find yourself transported to the cursed shores of Ithaca with this tale of love and fate, grief, and sacrifice. It is a novel that exemplifies the power we must find within, and the pure trust that we gift to the people we love the most.
