Books on Tyne: Newcastle’s book festival
Tuesday 26 November at 2 pm – 3.30 pm
Newcastle City Library
33 New Bridge Street West
Newcastle upon Tyne
Tickets are available from Eventbrite or you can call 0191 277 4100, or call in at either Newcastle City Library or The Lit & Phil.
As part of Books on Tyne 2019, I’ll be giving a talk about witches, witchfinders and witch trials from around the world, beginning with the 17th century witch trials in Newcastle and the Derwent Valley.
I’ll also talk about some of the superstition and folklore I’ve come across during my research. There’ll be a short reading from Sunwise, the sequel to Widdershins, which were both inspired by the Newcastle witch trials.
Finally, there’ll be a chance to ask questions and have books signed. If you already have copies of Sunwise or Widdershins, please bring them along and I’ll be happy to sign them for you. Waterstones will also have some copies for sale on the day if anyone would like one.
To make sure you get a seat, please book (follow the link, click on ‘Get Tickets’ and scroll down till you see my event).
Please note that there is a charge of £3, which all goes to the library to help keep libraries going.
