Sarah Hall in Conversation

Wednesday 17th March 7:30pm

Sarah Hall is one of the most highly praised novelists writing in Britain today and has twice been winner of the BBC Short Story Award. Born in Carlisle, most of her novels are set in the northwest, including Haweswater (2002) and The Wolf Border (2015), while her short stories have won her wide recognition as a doyenne of the form. For this event she will read and discuss her fiction and talk about her fascination with the short story form.

‘A timeless, unsettling story rendered in exquisite prose, [Sarah Hall’s] ‘The Grotesques’ yields more with each reading… It is the work of a writer who is not only devotedly committed to the short story genre but has become a master of it’
Jonathan Freedland, Chair of the Judges, BBC Short Story Award 2020

Sarah Hall was born in Cumbria in 1974. Twice nominated for the Man Booker prize, she is the award-winning author of five novels and three short-story collections – The Beautiful Indifference, which won the Edge Hill and Portico prizes, and Madame Zero, shortlisted for the Edge Hill Prize, and winner of the East Anglian Book Award, and Sudden Traveller. She is currently the only author to be four times shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award, which she won in 2013 with ‘Mrs Fox’ and in 2020 with ‘The Grotesques’.
