VIP Festival Launch: York Stories

10th March 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Over the years, novelists including Wilkie Collins and Kate Atkinson have set all or part of their books in York. At this special launch event for the 2016 festival, three very different novelists discuss how York has impacted on their writing. How has the city shaped their stories? What are its attractions to novelists?

Linda Grant (Upstairs at the Party), Pamela Hartshorne (Time’s Echo) and crime writer Leigh Russell (Murder Ring) will be in conversation with fellow novelist N E David.

Ticket price includes a glass of wine and canapes.

Tickets for this VIP event are strictly limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
