An Evening with Amy Liptrot and Olivia Laing Book launch: The Outrun
Wednesday 20th January 2016
19:00 at Waterstones, London - Piccadilly
Growing up in Orkney, shaped by the cycle of the seasons, life and death on the farm and her father's mental illness, Amy Liptrot longed to leave her remote life. Moving to London, she is drawn into a hedonistic cycle and unable to control her drinking, alcohol gradually takes over.
Now thirty, after ten years away, Amy finds herself drawn back to the island – and the outrun – to come to terms with what happened to her, and piece herself back together.
The Outrun is beautiful and inspiring; about living on the edge, the pull between island and city, and the power of the sea, land, wind and moon to restore life and renew hope.
“Beautiful, stark and unflinching. Amy Liptrot is an extraordinary new voice” - JENNI FAGAN
Join Amy as she discusses The Outrun with OLIVIA LAING, author of To The River, The Trip to Echo Spring and the upcoming The Lonely City. The evening will include an audience Q&A and both authors will be signing copies of their books. All welcome!
Tickets: £5 (redeemable against purchase of the books on the night)
Available in-store, by telephone 0207 851 2400 or email [email protected]
