Jon McGregor: Reservoir 13
8:00pm - 9:00pm - Sunday 11 June
Derbyshire, midwinter. A teenage girl goes missing. The villagers are called up to join the search, fanning out across the moors. Meanwhile, there is work that must still be done: cows milked, fences repaired, pints poured. Life goes on, as it must.
Jon McGregor, author of Even the Dogs and If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things, brings us his first novel in seven years: the story of many lives haunted by one family's loss, unfolding over the course of thirteen years in a small village. As an experienced performer of his own work, Jon will lead the audience on a journey through the landscapes and hidden stories of his new novel, Reservoir 13, with live musical accompaniment from Richard J Birkin and members of Haiku Salut.
