About the event

With huge excitement, Manningtree Arts is thrilled to host an evening and conversation with critically acclaimed author A.K. Blakemore.

A K Blakemore is an award-winning poet and novelist from London. Her first novel, The Manningtree Witches, won the Desmond Elliot Prize for Best First Novel and was shortlisted for a Costa Award. Her second novel, The Glutton, is forthcoming from Granta. Her work has been widely published, appearing in The London Review of Books, The White Review and The Guardian, among others.

There will be a chance to buy copies of The Manningtree Witches on the door, and get them signed. The conversation will also feature a local historian, so a brilliant chance to learn more about the history of Witches in Manningtree.

Tickets free but extremely limited, so definitely book quick!
