17:00 – 18:00 The Short Story – Tessa Hadley, Lucy Hughes Hallett

Alexander McKenzie Stage
The short story is considered by some to be the poor relation of the novel and by others as the highest and most rigorous form of fiction.  Tessa Hadley, whose new novel Late In The Day, was recently published, is an acknowledged master, whose stories appear frequently in The New Yorker and and other publications.  Local resident and prize-winning biographer and novelist Lucy Hughes-Hallett is a newcomer to the form, her first collection, Fabulous, just out.
Tessa and Lucy will be in conversation about the art of the short story with poet and critic Mark Ford.
