Salena Godden and Courttia Newland chaired by Lee Randall 

 3.30pm – 4.30pm BST* 

 Mrs Death has had enough. She is exhausted from spending eternity doing her job and now she seeks someone to unburden her conscience to. Wolf Willeford, a troubled young writer, is well acquainted with death, but until now hadn't met Death in person - a black, working-class woman who shape-shifts and does her work unseen. 

Salena Godden’s Mrs Death Misses Death is a life-affirming fire-starter of a novel. The Ark was built to save the lives of the many, but rapidly became a refuge for the elite. Years after the Ark was cut off from the world, a chance of survival within its confines is granted to a select few. Among their number is Markriss Denny, whose path to future excellence is marred only by a closely guarded secret. Set in an alternate world where slavery and colonialism never happened, Courttia Newland's A River called Time is both a timely exploration of social inequality and a story about love, loyalty and the search for the truth.
