In Conversation: Sarah Winman and Joanna Cannon

Tuesday 1st August 18:30 at Manchester - Deansgate

Waterstones Deansgate are delighted to welcome Sarah Winman and Joanna Cannon to Manchester to celebrate the publication of Sarah's latest novel, Tin Man, and to discuss Joanna's bestselling debut, The Trouble With Goats and Sheep.

Join both these wonderful authors in conversation with Naomi Frisby, PhD Creative Writing student and blogger at 'The Writes of Woman', before answering questions from the audience and signing copies of their books.

Tin Man is the unforgettable and achingly tender new novel from the author of the international bestseller When God Was A Rabbit. It begins with a painting won in a raffle: fifteen sunflowers, hung on the wall by a woman who believes that men and boys are capable of beautiful things. And then there are two boys, Ellis and Michael, who are inseparable. And the boys become men, and then Annie walks into their lives, and it changes nothing and everything.

The Trouble With Goats and Sheep has been described by the Guardian as ‘full of humour and careful depictions of everyday suffering, this is not so much a mystery novel as an investigation into the wealth of secrets and heartbreak that even the most commonplace street can hold'.

Tickets are £5/3, and are available online and in store. For more information email, or tweet us @waterstonesmcr.

We look forward to seeing you there!
