Overview

A chance to meet the author of this Peterborough-inspired best-selling novel. 

Louise Doughty will be talking about her new gripping and original novel, Platform Seven, set on Peterborough Railway Station.  She will read from the novel and talk about what inspired the book, and her life as a writer.

Louise is also the author of Apple Tree Yard, made into a BBC TV series in 2017.

Platform Seven at 4am: Peterborough Railway Station is deserted. The man crossing the covered walkway on this freezing November morning is confident he’s alone. As he sits on the metal bench at the far end of the platform it is clear his choice is strategic – he’s as far away from the night staff as he can get. What the man doesn’t realise is that he has company. Lisa Evans knows what he has decided. She knows what he is about to do as she tries and fails to stop him walking to the platform edge. Two deaths on Platform Seven. Two fatalities in eighteen months - surely they’re connected? No one is more desperate to understand what connects them than Lisa Evans herself. After all, she was the first of the two to die…

Louise was born in the East Midlands and grew up in Rutland.  The author of nine novels, she is also a critic and cultural commentator for UK and international newspapers and broadcasts regularly for the BBC.  She is a member of the Folio Academy and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.  In 2019 she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate (D.Litt) from the University of East Anglia.

 

This event is on Friday 15th November at 7pm.
