Jenn Ashworth and Peggy Riley (2013 event)

Brought up as a Mormon, Jenn Ashworth has since become a powerful voice in British fiction. She returned to Edinburgh with her third novel, The Friday Gospels, the story of a Mormon family that is by turns tragic and hilarious. Debut novelist Peggy Riley has written Amity and Sorrow, an astonishing, moving book about a woman and her children who flee from a religious cult. In this event, chaired by Serena Field and recorded live at the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival, the two novelists discuss their work and background.
