In 2014 Evie Wyld was award the European Book Award for her novel ‘All The Birds, Singing.’ The award – whose winners were announced this year at the Frankfurt book festival – recognises the best new and emerging authors in Europe and aims to help their international visibility, in part by facilitating the translation of their works.

 

Evie Wyld is the author of two novels. Her debut, ‘After the Fire, A Still Small Voice,’ was shortlisted for the Impac Prize, the Orange Award for New Writers and the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, and awarded the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. Her second, ‘All the Birds, Singing,’ won the Miles Franklin Prize, The Encore Prize and the EU Prize for Literature. In 2013 she was named as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists, having previously been named by the BBC as one of the twelve best new British writers.

 

This event takes place on Wednesday 18th March 2015, doors open at 7pm with a drinks reception and then Evie will chat with author and journalist Laura Barnett about her writing, her book and the prize. Evie will do a short reading from the book before we open up the conversation for questions.
