Tuesday 12th April Lunch, 12:30 - teacher, lecturer and Jungian psychoanalyst

Salley Vickers is the author of many highly acclaimed novels, including Miss Garnet’s Angel, The Cleaner of Chartres, Cousins, The Librarian, which was a top ten Sunday Times bestseller, Grandmothers, and two short story collections, The Boy Who Could See Death. She was born in Liverpool and grew up in the Potteries, in Stoke-on-Trent. She has worked as a teacher of children with special needs, a university teacher of literature and as Jungian psychoanalyst, she now lectures and writes full time.

Tim Battle, Librarian, comments:
The art of a good author is to draw the reader in, get them engaged with the characters, share their journey, want to know their fate. Vickers never lets her reader, or her heroine, subside into complacency; there is always, she reminds us, more work to be done.
