Author event: Samantha Priestley, Monday 15 January 2018

Continuing our author events, Sheffield author Samantha Priestley is coming next to the Library on the evening of Monday 18 January 2018 to talk about her new book "A bad winter" and her writing life.

When does passion turn to love? When does responsibility mean guilt? When does a death become a murder? In A Bad Winter these hefty questions stir up echoes through time, from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century, to create an intimate and powerful tale of personal lives in freefall. With her trademark pictorial prose and beautifully phrased metaphors, novelist Samantha Priestley has created a ghostly romance set among wintry Derbyshire hills, and a shivering good read. (source:
