Sold Out Open Book on Nights at the Circus

Reading Workshop

Marjorie Lotfi Gill and Claire Urquhart from Open Book, a charity which organises shared reading groups, explore Angela Carter’s Nights at the Circus, winner of the 1984 James Tait Black Memorial Prize. At the novel’s centre is Sophie, supposedly a Cockney virgin, hatched from an egg, ready to develop wings. Carter’s fantastical scenarios expose stark social issues. Expect an open discussion; you can read the book ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.
