Author Joanne Burn will be joining us to discuss her recent release ‘The Bone Hunters’; a historical fiction novel set in Lyme Regis, Dorset.

Our ​wonderful bookseller Tim, will be leading what is sure to be a fascinating discussion about ​the ​novel. ​This will be followed by a Q&A and ​Joanne will be available to sign your book afterwards.

About The Book
In 1824, Lyme Regis is as tumultuous as the sea that surrounds it. When twenty-four-year-old Ada Winters – poor, peculiar and brilliant – uncovers a set of unusual fossils on the cliffs, she believes she has found the answer to her scientific frustrations and her family’s financial struggles.
Meanwhile, Doctor Edwin Moyle has come to Dorset in search of the discovery that will place him amongst the greatest geologists of the age. What he finds instead is a strange young woman who seems to hold the key to everything he desires.
But what is the creature that Ada and Edwin seek to unearth? And will it lead them to greatness, or destruction?

About The Author
Joanne was born in Northampton in 1973, and grew up in a small town called Wolverton. Living opposite the railway works and next door to a motorbike garage, she longed for a different life – one of wild flowers and brambles, ditches and streams, of rock pools and seaweed, wet shells and tumbled glass. Joanne dreamed of ramshackle cottages in gnarly forests. And haunted stately homes where murders were likely to happen. read more
