Dark Gifts: Our World Book Night 2018 Event – 23rd April
Join us at the Central Library as we explore the world of magic and psychic powers with Vic James and Brian Clegg.
Are these abilities real and what could the world be like if they were?
The evening will be split into two parts where we explore firstly the scientific research being conducted into such phenomena as telepathy and telekinesis with award winning local science writer
Brian will be talking on his book ‘Extra Sensory’.
We’d all love to have ‘psi’ abilities like telepathy, telekinesis, and remote viewing. But is there any solid evidence to back up these talents, or are they nothing more than fantasy?
There will be some copies of the book Extra Sensory to be given away on the night on a first come first served basis…
Then we explore the fantasy and imagine what the world could be like if some people did have such abilities, as we delve into the dark Dystopian world created by…
… in her ‘Dark Gifts’ Trilogy, the first book of which, ‘Gilded Cage’ is one of the selected World Book Night 2018 Books.
Our world belongs to the Equals – aristocrats with magical gifts.
All commoners must serve them for ten years.
But behind the gates of England’s grandest estate lies a power that could break the world.
Welcome to the alternate contemporary Britain of THE DARK GIFTS …
HAVE A QUICK TEN YEARS!
Brian and Vic’s books will also be available to buy on the night but we may still have some copies of the World Book Night edition of ‘Gilded Cage’ to give away on a first come first served basis…
There will be time for questions and answers and the opportunity to get your books signed.
