An Evening with Writer in Residence, Susan Barker

An Evening with Writer in Residence, Susan Barker

7.30pm for 8pm

In a talk that includes readings from her award-winning third novel The Incarnations (2014) -- described by critics as 'multi-layered and masterful' and like 'China's Midnight's Children' -- novelist Susan Barker will talk about the process of writing her third novel. Set in China, Susan sought inspiration from the years she spent living in Beijing. She will also discuss the challenges of writing from other cultural perspectives as well as making the fictional leap beyond one's own identity. Susan is working on her fourth novel while staying at Gladstone's Library -- catch her before it's published!

Tickets are priced at £15 which includes a copy of Susan's latest book.
