An evening with the author of The Loney & Starve Acre

Our March visitor to the Brontë Lounge is Andrew Michael Hurley, the award-winning author of Starve Acre (2019) and The Loney (2014).

In this zoom event, Andrew will talk to our host Helen Meller about his evocation of northern Gothic landscape, atmosphere and folklore through his work, and what it means to write in this tradition.

Andrew Michael Hurley is based in Lancashire. His first novel, The Loney (2014), was described as “an amazing piece of fiction” by none other than Stephen King, and won the Costa Best First Novel Award. It has been published in twenty languages. His second novel, Devil’s Day, won the Encore Award. Starve Acre, his third novel, was released in 2019.

Tickets cost £6 and the event will start at 7.30pm UK time (GMT).

This event will take place via zoom.  It is a live event and will not be recorded.

The Brontë Society is a registered charity and this event has been organised to raise funds for the Brontë Parsonage Museum at this challenging time. 

Full details of how to join the event will be sent once you have booked your place.  

Please note that many museum staff are still furloughed or working from home, so at times, there may not be anyone one in the office to take your call. Please email if you have any queries about this event. 

Thank you for your support.  We look forward to welcoming you to the Brontë Lounge soon!
