About the Event
On Wednesday 6th December we’ll welcome Jessie Greengrass. Her recent novel The High House (2021), about the fragilities and strengths of family in the face of the climate crisis, is set in the near-future in a flooded England (possibly Suffolk). It was shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award, the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction and the Royal Society for Literature Encore Award. Her degree in philosophy influenced her genre-defying first novel Sight (2018), which was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction and longlisted for the Wellcome Prize. An Account of the Decline of the Great Auk, According to One Who Saw It, Jessie’s short story collection and first published work, won the Edge Hill Prize and a Somerset Maugham Award.
