Eleanor Catton: Birnam Wood – UK tour including Cambridge, London, Manchester and Oxford
February 28 @ 7:30 pm - April 5 @ 9:00 pm
Booker Prize-winning author Eleanor Catton is touring the UK to talk about her latest novel, Birnam Wood, which will be published on 2 March. This includes taking to the Queen Elizabeth Hall stage at the Southbank Centre on 16 March for a London exclusive event to discuss the highly anticipated psychological thriller.
Catton, whose second novel The Luminaries won the 2013 Booker Prize – making her the youngest author ever to win the prize (at age 28) and only the second New Zealander – will also be joined by fellow writer Val McDermid in London.
A compulsive literary thriller, Birnam Wood is Shakespearean in its wit, drama and immersion in character. A satirical examination of our contemporary political moment, the novel lays bare the human impulse to ensure our own survival.
Join Catton as she discusses her timely new novel and her writing life:
