Aye Write! Glasgow

Alan Bissett Introduces… Luke Kennard & Katie Khan

Novelist and playwright Alan Bissett will be talking to Luke and Katie about their terrifically imaginative debut novels.

In Luke Kennard’s The Transition young adults spend six months living under the supervision of two successful adults of a slightly older generation. Freed from their financial responsibilities, they are coached through Employment, Nutrition, Responsibility, Relationship, Finances and Self-Respect. Only then are they reintegrated into adult society.

In Katie Khan’s Hold Back the Stars Carys and Max are adrift in space with nothing to hold on to but each other. They can’t help but look back at the well-ordered world they have left behind – at the rules they couldn’t reconcile themselves to, and a life to which they might now never return. In a world where love is banned, what happens when you find it?

Tickets: £6.
