Join us at the AK Bell Library as the bestselling author, journalist and broadcaster Sally Magnusson discusses her latest novel, ‘The Ninth Child’.
Inspired by the mysterious death of the seventeenth-century minister Robert Kirke and the experiences of Sally’s own great grandmother, and set in a pivotal era when engineering innovation flourished but women did not, The Ninth Child blends folklore with historical realism in a spellbinding narrative.
Sally has inherited a rich storytelling tradition from her Scottish and Icelandic forebears. The Sealwomen’s Gift was a Radio 2 Book Club and ITV Zoe Ball Book Club selection, and was shortlisted for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award, the Saltire Fiction Book of the Year, the Paul Torday Memorial Prize, the McKitterick Prize, the Waverton Good Read Award and the HWA Debut Fiction Crown.
Tickets are available in person at the AK Bell Library or online via Eventbrite.
