    LITERARY DINNER WITH CECILIA EKBÄCK, AUTHOR OF WOLF WINTER, ON MONDAY 9TH MARCH

    Cecilia Ekbäck will be talking about her debut novel WOLF WINTER. Wolf Winter is already generating a lot of interest in the publishing world - and Hilary Mantel described the book: “Like a silent fall of snow; suddenly, the reader is enveloped… visually acute, skilfully written; it won’t easily erase its tracks in the reader’s mind.” And this from Lee Child: “Exquisitely suspenseful, beautifully written, and highly recommended.” Lee Child

    Cecilia Ekbäck has set Wolf Winter in the remote and beautiful landscape of Swedish Lapland in 1717. There, a group of settlers from across Scandinavia, all with reasons to escape the past, have come to forge a new life in the shadow of Blackåsen Mountain, among them intelligent, resilient Maija. Not long after their arrival, Maija’s fourteen-year-old daughter Frederika stumbles across a mutilated body in a picturesque glade. The other settlers are quick to dismiss this as a wolf attack, but Maija is certain that it is a vicious murder – and one committed by someone within their small community.

    Born in Sweden, Cecilia Ekbäck, who received an MA in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, has returned to the landscape and history of her childhood to bring Wolf Winter to vivid life. This is a story built up layer by layer, simultaneously a labyrinthine mystery, an evocative exploration of a time and place far from our own, and an exquisite literary novel. It will live on in the imagination long after the last page.

    The author will talk about her book after dinner and sign copies for you to purchase should you wish to do so.
