Manchester Writing: Magnus Mills
- Thu 22 Oct 2015
- 7:00 pm
The Manchester Writing School at MMU and the International Anthony Burgess Foundation are delighted to present special guest Magnus Mills. Magnus is the author of seven novels, including The Restraint of Beasts, which won the McKitterick Prize and was shortlisted for both the Booker Prize and the Whitbread (now the Costa) First Novel Award in 1999. His most recent novel, A Cruel Bird Came to the Nest and Looked In, was published to great critical acclaim. His books have been translated into 20 languages. He lives in London.
Manchester Writing is a new series designed to explore the techniques authors use and choices they make when writing, and debate issues arising from their work. Magnus will be reading from and talking about his work and in conversation answering questions from the audience. The evening will open with a short reading from original fiction by students of the Manchester Writing School. Drinks will be available to purchase from the bar, and there’ll be a special Blackwell’s bookstall, with signing after the event. Supported by MMU Humanities and Social Science Research. Tickets available via Eventbrite.
