To celebrate the life and work of Angela Carter on the 20th anniversary of her death we have invited Liz Calder (her publisher), Susannah Clapp (her friend and literary executor and author of A Card from Angela Carter) and lifelong fan, Ali Smith, to celebrate her achievement.

Paying tribute to this extraordinary artist and woman whose talents are gloriously evident in her groundbreaking collection The Bloody Chamber, our panel will be discussing this and other works.

Chaired by Alex Clark, book reviewer for The Guardian and The Times Literary Supplement, broadcaster and Editor, Union Books.

With thanks to Vintage Classics, The Bloody Chamber is our 2012 book of the festival.
