Novel Nights hosts an evening of readings by emerging writers followed by a discussion of craft with shortlisted Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year, Kim Sherwood. Kim’s debut novel, Testament, explores the impact of the Holocaust in Hungary on three generations of a Jewish family.  Her second novel, set among the smugglers of 18th century Devon, is published in 2021.

Novel Nights is Bath’s premier community of new and emerging writers. Join Kim as she talks to Novel Nights’ Colette Hill about using research as part of the creative process in writing historical fiction. Where are the best places to dig for stories? How much research should you do and when do you know you have done enough? How does the novelist’s approach differ from the historian’s?

This event takes place in conjunction with Bath Festival.

Date: Monday 18th May

Time: 7.00 – 9.00pm

Venue: Mr B’s Emporium, 14 – 15 John Street, Bath BA1 2JL
