with author Lucie McKnight Hardy
Book launch for a vivid, disquieting debut novel, Water Shall Refuse Them. During the heatwave of 1976, Nif and her grieving family move to a small village on the Welsh borders, but rural seclusion brings no relief. As her family unravels, Nif invents her own form of witchcraft, until she meets a teen boy called Mally, who has his own secret rites to divulge.
Join Lucie McKnight Hardy as she shares the inspiration and process for this story of family, grief and ritual. Lucie will be in conversation with writer Claire Askew. Perfect for fans of Shirley Jackson and British folklore.
