Jill Dawson will be talking about her new novel, The Language of Birds, a hypnotic novel about class, violence and friendship inspired by the shocking Lord Lucan case and the ‘lovely young nanny’ at its centre.
Jill herself worked as a nanny in London in the 1980s, and now lives in the Cambridgeshire Fens. She is the founder of Gold Dust, a mentoring scheme for new writers, and patron of the Maya Centre, which offers therapy to women experience violence or sexual violence. Her other novels include The Crime Writer, which won the East Anglian Book of the Year and was shortlisted for the 2017 New Angle Prize, and Lucky Bunny won a Fiction Uncovered Award.
