Ruth Eastham Cruinniú@Hinterland
Originally from Preston, Lancashire, Ruth Eastham is more a citizen of the world these days, having lived and worked in Australia, New Zealand and Italy.
A writer of young adult fiction, from mystery stories such as The Messenger Bird to supernatural adventures like Arrowhead, her latest novel is a page-turning adventure story with an environmental backdrop about the prevention of fracking called Warriors in the Mist. Her novel The Memory Cage was nominated for the Carnegie Prize and shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Book Prize.
Join Ruth for a creative writing workshop based around an object precious to you. It could be a photograph, a piece of jewellery, a cuddly toy, anything with a special memory attached.
Ruth will read from The Memory Cage to get ideas flowing.
