SARAH WINMAN IN CONVERSATION WITH TERRI NIXON SUNDAY 29 OCT 12PM
Tin Man is the unforgettable and achingly tender new novel from the author of the international bestseller When God Was A Rabbit. It begins with a painting won in a raffle: fifteen sunflowers, hung on the wall by a woman who believes that men and boys are capable of beautiful things. And then there are two boys, Ellis and Michael, who are inseparable. And the boys become men, and then Annie walks into their lives, and it changes nothing and everything.
Joining us for this year’s Literature Festival is the best-selling author of When God was a Rabbit and A Year of Marvellous Ways. Sarah Winman will deliver a reading and discussion of her new novel Tin Man, a novel which in turns makes and breaks your heart. Themes woven into the narrative include art’s transformative power of art and the untapped potential in our daily lives. Tin Man, as Hannah Beckerman describes it, is ‘a story about alternative lives that might have been lived had circumstances been different – socio-economically, culturally or familially.’ We are delighted to welcome Sarah, who will be joined in conversation by local author, Terri Nixon.
