About the event

Liz Hyder will be returning to The Stripey Badger  for a Cream Tea and Meet the Author event for her new book, The Illusions. Get your copy here

Bristol, 1896. Used to scraping a living as the young assistant to an  ageing con artist, Cecily Marsden's life is turned upside down when her  master suddenly dies. Believing herself to blame, could young Cec  somehow have powers she little understands?Meanwhile Eadie Carleton, a  pioneering early film-maker, struggles for her talent to be taken  seriously in a male-dominated world, and a brilliant young magician,  George Perris, begins to see the potential in moving pictures.

George believes that if he can harness this new technology, it will  revolutionise the world of magic forever - but in order to achieve his  dreams, he must first win over Miss Carleton... As a group  of illusionists prepare for a grand spectacle, Cec, Eadie and George's  worlds collide. But Cec soon finds herself facing the fight of her life  to save the performance from sabotage - and harness the element of real  magic held deep within her...

The Illusions the  captivating new novel from the much-lauded author of The Gifts. Inspired  by real-life illusionists and early film pioneers, this astonishing  story of women and talent, magic and power, sweeps you into a world  where anything is possible and nothing is quite as it seems.

Our Cream Tea events are cosy, comfy, and your ticket includes a drink and a cream tea, with a homemade scone.
