“The Quick” author Lauren Owen at Blackhall Library

“Owen proves a master at anticipating readers’ thoughts about future happenings and then crumbling them into dust”. Booklist

“Macabre and atmospheric” The Sunday Times

“Owen’s sentence-by-sentence prose is extraordinarily polished–a noteworthy feat for a 500-page debut–and she packs many surprises into her tale, making it a book for readers to lose themselves in.” Publishers Weekly

Hot on the heels of our evening with Emma Healey Blackhall Library hosts another rising literary star next month with the visit of Lauren Owen, author of ‘The Quick‘.

Rich in Victorian detail, Lauren’s clever take on the gothic novel travels from the wilds of Yorkshire to London’s mysterious Aegolius Club – a society of the richest and most powerful men in England.

Along the way, there’s romance, adventure, and vampires like you’ve never encountered before.

Book early to ensure your free place at what promises to be a fascinating evening.

Blackhall Library, Wednesday 17th September at 6.30pm, free.
