Awesome Prose Reading Club
February 16, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
One of the very best ways to become a better writer is to read widely and thoughtfully. Building on Emma and Matt’s great work in establishing the Awesome Play Text / Screenplay Reading Club, Francesca will be hosting the Awesome Prose Reading Club to focus on how we can read as writers.
If you want to join us, the first book we’ll be reading and talking about is: Sarah Moss’s 2018 novel, Ghost Wall. “It’s short, available in paperback, and (most importantly) it’s really great. In the north of England, far from the intrusions of cities but not far from civilization, Silvie and her family are living as if they are ancient Britons, surviving by the tools and knowledge of the Iron Age. The ancient Britons built ghost walls to ward off enemy invaders, rude barricades of stakes topped with ancestral skulls. When the group builds one of their own, they find a spiritual connection to the past. What comes next but human sacrifice?”
