In conversation with Kirsty Wark – ‘The House by the Loch'
Kirsty Wark is a journalist, broadcaster and writer who has presented a wide range of BBC programmes over the past thirty years, from the ground-breaking Late Show to Newsnight .
Join Kirsty as she discusses her latest novel, ‘The House by the Loch’, a sweeping, atmospheric novel of family drama and long-hidden secrets, set in the beautiful Scottish countryside. The novel is inspired in part by the author’s childhood memories and her late father. It is a story of the bonds between generations, the need to belong and the devastating consequences of family secrets. Kirsty writes about family in all its loving complexity, and the way it can, and must, remake itself endlessly in order to make peace with the past.
Kirsty has won several major awards for her work, including BAFTA Awards for Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting, Journalist of the Year and Best Television Presenter. Her debut novel, ‘The Legacy of Elizabeth Pringle’, was published in March 2014 and shortlisted for the Saltire First Book of the Year Award, as well as nominated for the 2016 International DUBLIN Literary Award.
Kirsty will be in conversation with Ben Fuller, of St Peter’s School.
