One city. One book. A thousand conversations…


Rose Tremain in conversation with Nicolette Jones

‘A remarkable novel’ The Times

City Reads, Brighton and Hove’s BIG READ, returns to Brighton Festival with an award winning novel, from one of Britain’s literary heavyweights.

Standing in a cold Suffolk field with her family, six-year-old Mary Ward has a revelation: I am not Mary. That is a mistake. I am not a girl. I'm a boy.

Join Rose Tremain (CBE) live for an intimate celebration of her 1992 classic, and re-discover this hugely relevant work told with skill and compassion.
