AWARD -winning author Claire Fuller is due to talk about her new novel of betrayal and resilience during a virtual event being organised by North Yorkshire libraries.

‘Unsettled Ground’ is described as ‘a portrait of life on the fringes of society that explores how we can build our lives on broken foundations and spin light from darkness’ and will be explored via Zoom on Saturday, March 27.

“This fantastic online offer from such a renowned author is another of our virtual events the library service has been delivering to residents across the county,” said County Councillor Greg White, Executive member for libraries.

“We are continually adding to our online events and details can be found on Eventbrite. Coming up we are celebrating Women’s History Month and hosting an online poetry club so I would encourage everybody to get involved and support this valuable service.”

Claire will be hosting her talk from 2pm to 3pm on Saturday, March 27, on Zoom and the public will have the opportunity to ask questions. To register for the event delivered in collaboration with Books Up North, visit

Instructions on how to join the Zoom call will be sent by email the day before.
