Shirley Jackson Day

Wednesday 27th June 2018 7pm - 8:30pm Royal Festival Hall Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Shirley Jackson Day celebrates the legacy of the legendary suspense author, and takes place on the day of the "Lottery" (from Jackson's iconic story of the same name).

Join us, and four talented authors, for haunting readings and a discussion Jackson's impact. This year's event will feature readings from finalists for this year's Shirley Jackson Awards:


Sophia Al-Maria is a Qatari-American artist and screenwriter. She is currently writer in residence at the Whitechapel Gallery, London. A collection of Al-Maria’s writing, Sad Sack, will be released later this year with Bookworks UK. Her first book was The Girl Who Fell to Earth (Harper Collins, 2012).


Gary Budden is a writer, editor and the co-founder of Influx Press. Hollow Shores was published earlier in 2017, and his dark fiction novella, Judderman (as D.A. Northwood) is published in 2018. His short story ‘Greenteeth’ was adapted into a short film by the filmmaker Adam Scovell. His work has been published widely, including Black Static, Structo, Elsewhere, Unthology, The Lonely Crowd, Gorse, and Year’s Best Weird Fiction.


Tade Thompson is the author of The Murders of Molly Southbourne, Rosewater and Making Wolf. His work has won the Kitschies and the Nommo Award for African Speculative Fiction. He has been also been a finalist for both the BSFA and John W. Campbell awards.
