City Reads 2018: Debut Novelists Night

Date: 1st May 2018

Time: 19.30

Location: Waterstones, Brighton

Three women writers. Three impressive debut novels…

Allie Rogers, author of the widely praised debut, Little Gold  and Polly Clark who wrote the impressive debut Larchfield chat to Sharon Duggal, last year’s City Reads author. They will discuss the process of writing,

Allie Rogers’ widely praised debut, Little Gold tells the story of a boyish girl on the brink of adolescence, who is struggling with the reality of her broken family and a home descending into chaos, Polly Clark’s memorable debut Larchfield is a beautiful novel about a woman’s struggle with isolation and sanity interwoven with a narrative about the poet W. H. Auden. They will be talking to Sharon Duggal (who’s remarkable debut The Handsworth Times was the City Reads book for 2017).
Recommended for book lovers and aspiring writers alike.
