The Devil's Day: Myth, Tribes and Folk Horror in Britain with Andrew Michael Hurley

Thursday 26th October 2017 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Gear up for Halloween with this perfectly eerie event with award winning author, Andrew Michael Hurley.

Following on from the success of his debut novel, The Loney, Andrew Michael Hurley joins us to discuss his new, equally haunting book, Devil's Day. 

Every autumn, John Pentecost returns to the Lancashire farm where he grew up to help gather the sheep from the moors. Generally, very little changes in the Briardale Valley, but this year things are different. Every year the Gaffer, his grandfather, would redraw the boundary lines of the village, with pen and paper but also through the remembrance of folk tales, family stories and timeless communal rituals which keep the sheep safe from the Devil.

This year, though, the determination of some members of the community to defend those boundary lines has strengthened, and John and his wife Katherine must decide where their loyalties lie, and whether they are prepared to make the sacrifices necessary to join the tribe...

At this exclusive London event, Andrew Michael Hurley will be reading from his new novel and speaking to the critic, journalist and broadcaster Alex Clark.
