Jenni Fagan: 'Geillis Duncan Has a Broomstick'
Sponsored by
University of Edinburgh

Combining a fertile imagination with a powerful sense of social justice, Jenni Fagan has a talent for writing great fiction. Her latest novella Hex underlines that, retelling the true story of Geillis Duncan – one of the first women accused in the North Berwick Witch Trials – as a tragedy with a contemporary resonance. Chaired by Sally Magnusson.

Supported by the University of Edinburgh’s genderED hub
