Take time away from the monotony of the everyday and escape into a world of fantasy fiction. After a fantastic appearance at last year’s Festival, bestselling science fiction author of The Gaia Chronicles and award-winning poet, Naomi Foyle, joins us once again for an inspiring lunchtime discussion.

Foyle will offer a unique insight into the wonders and worlds of this exciting and extremely popular genre and will discuss her own work, a science-fantasy quartet set in a post fossil-fuel Mesopotamia.
