Katharine McMahon’s eight novels include The Rose of Sebastapol, a Richard and Judy Book Club choice, The Crimson Rooms and The Alchemist’s Daughter. Katharine’s most recent novel, Season of Light, begins in the heady days of 1788, when Paris is fizzing with new ideas about liberty and equality. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, it follows the fortunes of the Ardleigh sisters whose lives become entwined with a city on the cusp of revolution. Andrew Williams is the Edinburgh-based author of historical fiction titles The Interrogator and To Kill a Tsar, which was nominated for the Scott Prize and described as ‘a superb evocation of spies, radical passions and revolution’ by the Daily Mail. His eagerly awaited new novel, The Poison Tide, is set in America and Germany during World War 1. £6/£4. Book on 0843 208 0500 or via Quay Tickets. A Manchester Literature Festival event.
