Friends of Stony Stratford Library: An Evening With Tessa Hadley
Venue: Stony Stratford Library, 5-7 Church Street, Stony Stratford
Date: 23 Jan 2018
FoSSL will present 'An Evening with Tessa Hadley'. The event will form part of Stony Stratford's literary festival, Stony Words 2018. Tessa Hadley is the author of six highly regarded novels, the most recent of which, The Past, won the Hawthornden Prize for 2016. Her latest publication is the collection of short stories Bad Dreams (Jonathan Cape). Her work appears regularly in the New Yorker and other magazines and she reviews regularly for the Guardian. For FoSSL she will read from her recent work and discuss her writing.
Praise for Tessa Hadley: 'Tessa Hadley recruits admirers with each book. She writes with authority, and with delicacy: she explores nuance, but speaks plainly; she is one of those writers a reader trusts.' (Hilary Mantel.) 'Few writers give me such consistent pleasure.' (Zadie Smith.)
More details about the evening will be given in due course.
