Where better than Strawberry Hill House with its famous ‘gloomth’ for this fantastic panel event with the best-selling authors of some truly dark and wayward tales. Discover stories of witches,
anatomists and demons in the marshes all in a suitably atmospheric setting. Stacey Halls’ spellbinding debut novel The Familiars is a haunting story of women and witchcraft. Fascinated by the Pendle witches, her book is based upon extensive research on Gawthorpe Hall and her real-life heroine, Fleetwood Shuttleworth. Jess Kidd has been praised for her unique fictional
voice. Her highly acclaimed third book, Things in Jars, is an enchanting Victorian detective novel
that explores what it is to be human in inhumane times.Michelle Paver is the bestselling author of
gloriously chilling novels Dark Matter and Thin Air. Her new book Wakenhyrst is a darkly gothic thriller about murderous obsession and one girl’s longing to fly free.
