Writers at York Special Event: Fiona Mozley

Wednesday 11 October 2017, 2.30PM

Join us for a very special Writers at York event, celebrating the success of York PhD student Fiona Mozley’s debut novel, Elmet, which is shortlisted for this year’s Man Booker Prize. 

Elmet – the Gothic tale of a family living in rural Yorkshire –has been hailed by critics and described as ‘a clever magnificent achievement’ (TLS) and ‘a quiet explosion of a book, exquisite and unforgettable’ (The Economist) – ‘Hansel and Gretel meets The Godfather’ (The Sunday Times). Fiona grew up in York and is studying for a PhD in Medieval Studies.

Please join us to hear her read and discuss her novel, and to wish her well for the Booker ceremony the following week.


This is a Writers at York event.

Writers at York offers a lively programme of public readings and workshops, and aims to celebrate and explore the work of emerging and established contemporary writers.
