Hannah Kohler grew up on the south coast of England. Her first novel,The Outside Lands, is set in 1960s San Francisco and Vietnam and was longlisted for the 2017 International Dylan Thomas Prize. She was a joint recipient of the 2017 Eccles British Library Writer’s Award which she used to research her second novel, Catspaw. Set during the California Gold Rush of 1849, the novel will follow two women from Chicago as they travel to the Sierra foothills. As each woman seeks to escape the constraints of their lives in Victorian-era America, the story will explore the struggle to win the self, and keep it; the corrosive and curative powers of desire; and the complications of friendship. It will be published by Picador.

Sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library

Cost: Free of Charge
