Book Tickets: £5

The author of the award winning “Ghostbird” presents her new book“Snow Sisters” and talks about genre, ghosts and the gothic.

Snow Sisters: Two sisters, an old house and Angharad a girl who cannot leave.

Praise for the book:

A stunning work of literary fiction wrapped around a ghost story – Kendra Olson

I think the author has created a new genre, the lyrical Gothic – Eve Merrick-Williams

A book that defies genre … literary fiction, with magical realism and feminism. I was unprepared for the exquisiteness of the authors writing, the glorious prose and the poetic and lyrical nature of the wording – Leah Moyse

Carol Lovekin is a feminist and a flâneuse. She writes contemporary fiction laced with Welsh Gothic exploring family relationships between sisters, and mothers and daughters. Her work has been described as ‘lyrical’ and ‘spellbinding.’ She drinks a lot of tea.

Carol Lovekin: Genre, Ghosts & the Gothic

Bydd awdur y nofel “Ghostbird” a enillodd glod mawr yn cyflwyno’i llyfr newydd “Snow Sisters” ac yn trafod dulliau, ysbrydion a’r gothig.

Snow Sisters: Dwy chwaer mewn hen dŷ ac AngharadTwo sisters, an old house and Angharad, merch nid yw’n medru gadael.

Canmoliaeth i’r llyfr:

Gwaith ffuglen lenyddol syfrdanol wedi ei weu o gwmpas stori ysbryd – Kendra Olson

Rwy’n credo bod yr awdur wedi creu ffurf newydd, gothig telynegol –  Eve Merrick-Williams

Mae Carol Lovekin yn ffeminydd a flâneuse. Mae hi’n ysgrifennu ffuglen gyfoes gyda rhywfaint o Othig Cymreig ac yn archwilio perthnasau rhwng chwiorydd a mamau a’i merched. Disgrifiwyd ei gwaith fel ‘telynegol’ a ‘chyfareddol.’ Mae hi’n yfed llawer o de. Trydar: @carollovekin
