THE LIE TREE: FRANCES HARDINGE
The Lie Tree is a rarity – a children’s book that won the Costa Book of the Year. Frances Hardinge positions her seventh novel as “a Victorian Gothic mystery with added paleontology, blasting powder, post-mortem photography and feminism.” The page-turner tells the tale of 14-year-old Faith, who wants to study natural science just like her mysteriously killed father. Join Hardinge in conversation with Kate De Goldi for a journey to the darker side of story-telling.
