Unfortunately due to the constantly evolving coronavirus situation, Aye Write 2020 has been cancelled, and this event will no longer go ahead. We will contact ticket holders directly as soon as possible.

Set across two continents, Polly Clark’s Tiger is a sweeping story of survival and redeeming love that plunges the reader into one of the world's last wildernesses with blistering authenticity. Frieda is a primatologist, who, following a violent attack takes on a new role as a zookeeper, where she confronts a very different ward: an injured wild tiger. In Bird Summons by Leila Aboulela, Salma and Moni are on a road trip in the Scottish Highlands when they are visited by the Hoopoe, a sacred bird whose fables from Muslim and Celtic literature compel them to question the balance between faith and femininity, love, loyalty and sacrifice.
