Edinburgh International Book Festival: Fearsomely Talented Writers from Down Under - UK, Edinburgh

I am thrilled to announce that I will be appearing at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival during its 10th-26th August run. With over 800 events, and over 700 authors in attendance, it promises to be a truly exceptional event.


Eleanor Catton and Hannah Kent

Saturday 24 August, 7:00pm - 8:00pm, Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre, £7.00, £5.00

We are thrilled to welcome Eleanor Catton from New Zealand to launch her second novel. Few books are more keenly anticipated in the literary world this year than The Luminaries, a gripping mystery set during the 1866 gold rush. Also joining us from the other side of the world is Hannah Kent, the Adelaide-based author whose beautifully crafted, haunting debut novel, Burial Rites, is set in 19th century Iceland.
