16 August – Edinburgh Book Festival with Hannah Kent
July 28 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 am£14
Join two bestselling novelists as they discuss displacement, cruelty and the strength of unlikely attachments. In Hannah Kent’s Devotion, teenage Hanne finds a kindred spirit in Thea – but Thea’s Old Lutheran family are leaving in search of religious freedom. In Jess Kidd’s The Night Ship, a girl boards a ship rife with threatening tensions and a struggling teenager is placed into the care of his grandfather, in a hostile place. Their conversation is chaired by Alice Tarbuck.
