Join us on Tuesday 6th March for the first Arnolfini Bookclub. 

Author of the critically acclaimed Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain, Barney Norris will read from his new novel, Turning for Home, and discuss his forthcoming play at London's Bridge Theatre, Nightfall in conversation with Arnolfini Director, Claire Doherty.

Barney’s best-selling debut novel, Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain, was called a ‘state of the nation novel’, and ‘deeply affecting’ by the Guardian and was shortlisted for prizes including the RSL Ondaatje Prize and Debut of the Year at the British Book Awards. He is the Martin Esslin Playwright in Residence at Keble College, Oxford and his new play Nightfall is one of the three inaugural productions at Nicholas Hytner’s new Bridge Theatre, beginning April this year. 

Copies of Turning for Home and Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain will be available to purchase on the night from our bookshop at a special discounted rate.
