Frances Hardinge: Cuckoos and Lies (2017)

Auckland Writers Festival Schools Programme 2017
Proudly supported by Freemasons Foundation

Brought up in a succession of small, sinister English villages, Frances Hardinge spent her formative years living in a Gothic-looking, mouse-infested house in Kent, and studied English Language and Literature amid the archaic beauty of Oxford, all of which nurtured her feverish imagination. She has written seven books for children and young adults, the most recent of which, The Lie Tree, won the 2015 Costa Book of the Year Award. Frances discusses creepy literature and writing about deliciously dark and dangerous worlds .
