Sean Lusk – The Second Sight of Zachary Cloudesley
Thursday 10th August, 2023
Lodge Stage, Lodge Grounds
1pm – 2pm
Award-winning short story writer and winner of the Manchester Fiction Prize, Sean Lusk talks about falling down rabbit holes and the perils of historical research. He’ll be delving into the process of researching his prize-nominated debut novel The Second Sight of Zachary Cloudesley and what he learned of 18th century midwifery, wet nursing, of twelve days that vanished from the calendar, of Jacobites, of a clockwork space race fought between Britain and France, and of gay lives lived both secretly and openly. No rabbits will be harmed in this event.
