Unfortunately, Sebastian Barry has cancelled his book tour and sadly will no longer be coming to Sevenoaks on 20th March. We hope we will be able to find a new date for our event when the Coronavirus pandemic is over.

However, the good news is that before he went back to Ireland Sebastian signed all the copies of A Thousand Moons we had ordered for the event!
A Thousand Moons is the follow-up to Days Without End – told in the voice of Winona, the young Lakota orphan adopted by former soldiers Thomas McNulty and John Cole. Living on their farm in 1870s Tennessee, she is educated and loved, forging a life for herself in the aftermath of the Civil War. But this fragile harmony is soon threatened by a further traumatic event.
Told in Sebastian Barry’s gorgeous, lyrical prose, A Thousand Moons is a powerful, moving study of one woman’s journey, of her determination to write her own future, and of the enduring human capacity for love.
‘Nobody writes like, nobody takes lyrical risks like, nobody pushes the language, and the heart, and the two together, quite like Sebastian Barry does, so that you come out of whatever he writes like you’ve been away, in another climate’ – Ali Smith.
