An Evening with Catherine Chanter

On Thursday 18th February at 7.30 pm, we are very excited to welcome Catherine Chanter to the bookshop. Catherine will speak about her critically-acclaimed debut novel ‘The Well’, published by Canongate.
‘The Well’ is at once a post-apocalyptic musing on a society with dwindling resources, a thriller, and a hauntingly poetic fable, with elements of myth and magic. It is both gripping and beautifully written, with echoes of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. ‘The Well’ won the Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize in 2013, was selected for the Richard and Judy Book club, and Catherine was named as one of the Observer ‘New Faces of Fiction 2015’.
Catherine Chanter has written for radio 4 and had many short stories and poems published. She has an MA in Creative Writing from Oxford Brookes university, and worked in education and as a political lobbyist before becoming a full-time writer.
Tickets are £5 – or free with a purchase of ‘The Well’.
Advance booking advised. Available in store or by calling us on 01903 812062.
