Join us for a wonderful evening with the multimillion bestselling author and co-founder of the Women’s Prize for Fiction, Kate Mosse.

Kate Mosse will be in conversation with Sarah Mullen, the owner of our festival booksellers Green Heart Books, about her brand new novel
The Ghost Ship. A sweeping and epic love story, ranging from France in 1610 to Amsterdam and the Canary Islands in the 1620s, The
Ghost Ship
 is a thrilling novel of adventure and buccaneering, love and revenge, stolen fortunes and hidden secrets on the High Seas.

Most of all, it is a tale of defiant women in a man’s world.
