We’re delighted to open Durham Book Festival with a special preview of three of the most-anticipated books to be published by John Murray in 2020.

Sally Magnusson is an acclaimed broadcaster, journalist and the bestselling author of Where Memories Go and The Sealwoman’s Gift. Her forthcoming novel The Ninth Child is a nineteenth century tale of loss and myth set in the Scottish Highlands.

Karen Raney‘s powerful debut All the Water in the World follows a teenage girl and her mother, as they grapple with first love, family secrets and tragedy.

Guinevere Glasfurd’s The Year Without Summer is set in 1816, when a massive climate disruption caused famine, poverty and changed people’s lives forever.

Attendees will receive special proof copies of all the featured books to take home.

Chaired by Rebecca Wilkie, New Writing North
