Twice nominated Man Booker Prize author, Sarah Hall, will be joining us for a live in-person event in October to celebrate the publication of her forthcoming novel Burntcoat.

We are extremely privileged to host Sarah for a novel that has been described as an electrifying novel of passion, connection and transformation from a writer of show-stopping genius.

“You were the last one here, before I closed the door of Burntcoat. Before we all closed our doors.”

In the bedroom above her immense studio at Burntcoat, the celebrated sculptor Edith Harkness is making her final preparations. The symptoms are well known: her life will draw to an end in the coming days. Downstairs, the studio is a crucible glowing with memories and desire. It was here, when the first lockdown came, that she brought Halit. The lover she barely knew. A presence from another culture. A doorway into a new and feverish world.

Join us for what is sure to be a wonderful evening.
