These Our Monsters: An Evening of New Myth and Legend
Join Edward Carey, Graeme Macrae Burnet, Alison Macleod, Sarah Moss and Fiona Mozley for an evening of readings and discussion.
From the legends of King Arthur embedded in the rocky splendour of Tintagel to the folklore and mysticism of Stonehenge, English Heritage sites are often closely linked to native English myths and “These Our Monsters” is a new collection of stories inspired by those tales that swirl through the history of eight different English Heritage sites.
This evening we are thrilled to welcome authors Edward Carey, Graeme Macrae Burnet, Alison Macleod, Sarah Moss and Fiona Mozley along with illustrator Clive Hicks-Jenkins for an evening of readings and discussion.
£10 tickets are available at the shop and online here
