Just in time for Hallowe’en, join our panel of authors as we delve into the world of contemporary Gothic fiction. We are joined by Diane Setterfield, author of The Thirteenth Tale, which has sold over 4 million copies and been adapted in to BBC drama; Essie Fox, whose novel Elijah’s Mermaid was inspired by the Foundling Hospital; and Laura Purcell, whose award-winning book The Silent Companions was a Radio 2 Book Club pick.

There will be a paid bar on the evening and the authors will also be signing copies of their books. Please feel free to bring your own copies, or West End Lane Books will be selling sell books at the event.
