Manchester Literature Festival: Paula Hawkins, Renée Knight & Kate Hamer on Women in Crime
- Thu 15 Oct 2015
- 7:00 pm
Join us for an evening with three rising stars of crime whose books feature strong female protagonists. Paula Hawkins’ debut, The Girl on the Train, was the blockbuster publishing success of 2015, topping bestseller lists worldwide. It follows Rachel, who sees something unsettling from the window of a commuter train that will change her life forever. In Renée Knight’s debut, Disclaimer, Catherine reads one of her darkest secrets in a book, and must track down the author before the story ends – in her death. Kate Hamer’s moving first novel, The Girl in the Red Coat, is a split-perspective story of child abduction. Eight-year-old Carmel has always been a strange, uncanny child. When she disappears at a festival, mother Beth must race to find her. Chaired by Cath Staincliffe. Tickets available from the Manchester Literature Festival website or 0843 208 0500.
