English PEN presents Ghostwriters with Toby Litt, Hilary Mantel and Patrick McGrath
Tickets must be booked before the event.
Tuesday 16 May
People have been telling stories about them for millennia, but why are we so haunted by the idea of ghosts? As they say in Hollywood, there is nothing there in the dark that isn’t there by day – except fear. To put a shiver down your spine on a spring evening, authors Toby Litt, Patrick McGrath and Hilary Mantel get together to compare notes on their own spooky writing and ask what it is about ghosts that has a curious effect on writers’ imaginations, in a discussion chaired by PEN’s own Simon Burt.
Time: 7- 8.30pm
Venue: Adam Street Club, 9 Adam Street, London. WC2N 6AA
