BOOK CLUB 18: A Girl Made of Air / The Island Child

November 23, 2021

Hearing stories. Telling stories. Adapting stories. The power of stories...

We speak with Nydia Hetherington, author of "A Girl Made of Air" and Molly Aitken, author of "The Island Child" about their use of folklore and story in their novels. For Nydia, these stories are drawn from Manx folklore which Molly's book is firmly rooted in Irish lore.
