Two well-known and award winning authors – Graham Rawle and Catherine Fisher – will be visiting Cardiff Met to talk about their work. The event is open to all students and staff at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Dark supernatural fantasy: Catherine Fisher
Catherine Fisher is a prolific novelist of gripping, dark fantasy and supernatural adventures which have enthralled many of her fans and readers. Her novels include The Snow Walker’s Trilogy, The Obsidian Mirror and Incarceron.
A former primary school teacher and archaeologist, the stories and worlds she creates have been described as ‘outstanding’ (The Times), ‘exciting’ (School Librarian) and ‘thrilling’ (Daily Mail). Her latest book in The Obsidian Mirror series, The Speed of Darkness, was launched on February 11th.
Catherine will be talking about her work and imagined worlds in Cyncoed Library on Tuesday 8th March from 12-1pm with free food and drink. Book your place via firstname.lastname@example.org or Event Brite.
