The Burning: Laura Bates in conversation

Tuesday 19th February 2019 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Join feminist activist, author and founder of The Everyday Sexism Project Laura Bates (Everyday Sexism; Girl Up) as she introduces her highly-anticipated debut Young Adult novel The Burning.

When fifteen year old Anna moves to a small Scottish town with her mother she thinks there is nothing left to link her to her to what happened. But it isn’t long before the whispers start again. Desperate for a distraction to escape the brutal bullying at school, Anna buries herself in a history project about Maggie—a young girl accused of witchcraft hundreds of years before—but as Anna finds herself drawn closer to Maggie’s story she can’t help but notice it appears terrifyingly similar to her own.

Laura will discuss visiting schools around the UK and talking to teenagers for the Everyday Sexism Project; her research into historical witch trials in Scotland and campaigning for gender equality and how these experiences have helped to shape the novel.

The event will be chaired by author and journalist Anna James and followed by a Q&A and a book signing.
