On Thursday 26th March Dulwich Books invite you to discover two of our favourite new voices of this year, Catherine Chanter and Sara Taylor.

 

Over the past few years we’ve been delighted to showcase some of the most exciting new writers hitting our shelves, including the likes of Jessie Burton (The Miniaturist), Eimear McBride (The Girl is a Half Formed Thing) , and Kevin Powers (The Yellow Birds) to name but a few. Now we’d like to introduce you to our hotly tipped new picks for literary stardom.

 

Sara Taylor is the author of ‘The Shore,’ Dulwich Books’ owner Sheila hailed the book as one of her predictions for this year’s major awards longlists and described it as “storytelling at its best… a rich and stunning novel with mesmerising and wonderful narrative threads.”

 

Catherine Chanter is the author of ‘The Well,’ when our bookseller Dave read it he described it as “a spectacular debut novel which starts in a world reminiscent of Margaret Atwood’s ‘A Handmaid’s Tale’ then drags you into a tense psychological thriller.”

 

The evening will be hosted by Editorial Director at Canongate, Louisa Joyner.

 

This event takes place on Thursday 26th March at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6 which includes a glass of wine and canapés. Or for £20 you can get both books and a glass of wine and canapés; available from Dulwich Books in person, phone on 0208 670 1920, email dulwichbooks@yahoo.co.uk or online from http://dulwichbooks.....uk/?s=32033232.
