About this event

Join us in the Sillitoe Room for a reading, conversation, audience Q&A and book signing with one of our most beloved authors, Ali Smith. She'll be discussing Spring, the latest instalment of her Seasonal Quartet.

Spring will come. The leaves on its trees will open after blossom. Before it arrives, a hundred years of empire-making. The dawn breaks cold and still but, deep in the earth, things are growing.

Described by the author Sebastian Barry as 'Scotland’s Nobel Laureate-in-waiting', Ali Smith is one of Britain’s foremost contemporary novelists. Formally and topically experimental, her best known works include: The Accidental, Girl Meets Boy (part of the Canongate Myths series), There But For The, and How to Be Both, which won the Baileys Prize, the Goldsmiths Prize and the Costa Novel Award and was shortlisted for the Man Booker and the Folio Prize.

Tickets are £6, or £4 for Waterstones Plus cardholders and students.
