Megan Hunter will be ‘In Conversation’ with Mary Buckley talking about her novel The Harpy (Picador, 2020) which follows on from her much acclaimed The End We Start From (Picador, 2017) which was shortlisted for the Novel of the Year at the Books Are My Bag Awards, longlisted for the Aspen Woods Prize, was a Barnes and Noble Discover Awards finalist and won the Forward Review’s Editor’s Choice Award.

The Harpy is about love, betrayal and revenge. Esther Freud found it ‘utterly compelling’ and Evie Wyld portrayed it as ‘a genuinely thrilling read, one long beautiful scream.’

This event will be of particular interest to anyone who enjoys novels, or is interested in pursuing a career in writing or publishing.

All welcome, including non college members. The link to register is here: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUrcO6rqDoiHNYhecZbx4ZDYqCzxNMGPMMo
