Cambridge Literary festival: Evie Wyld and Kiran Millwood Hargrave

Two brilliant storytellers explain why their new novels have lured them into the world of witches and the past both distant and near. In The Bass Rock, Wylde (one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists) transports us to the Scottish coastline, and in The Mercies, acclaimed children’s writer Kiran Millwood Hargrave journeys to a remote Norwegian island in 1617. Chaired by Jo Browning Wroe, writer and teacher. With thanks to Lit Fuse (funded by the ARU Arts Council) inspires creative writers through practical workshops, retreats, meet-ups, and competitions.
