A chance to hear two innovative British novelists talk about their work and the nature of collaboration between author and editor. In 2012 Alison Moore's first novel, The Lighthouse, caused a literary sensation and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Alison's editor was Nicholas Royle, whose seventh novel, First Novel, is published this month. The two writers will be in conversation with Gregory Norminton. Come and hear them read from and discuss their work.
