presenting her latest literary suspense fiction, the first “outbreak”
in the Plague Times trilogy, A Lovely Way to Burn, at Bookfest Windsor

This is Welsh’s sixth psychological thriller. Welsh has combined her
expertise in history, a literary style, and her fascination with crime to
produce a novel that has been dubbed a thrilling dystopian mystery and
apocalyptic whodunit. Her work has earned her an international reputation
and long list of awards. As of December 2010, she is the Writer in
Residence at Glasgow University and Glasgow School of Art.

Cost:$20/$5 students (for a full-day festival pass)
