Eerie, fantastical and hugely ambitious, this collection announces the arrival of an outstanding young voice. 

Join us for an evening with Lottie Mills as she reads from her debut story collection Monstrum, a darkly atmospheric and beautifully crafted mediation on ‘otherness’.

Lottie Mills’ haunting modern fairytales capture the experience of characters excluded by a society that cannot accept their differences, inspired by her own experiences of living with Cerebral Palsy and lupus.

In the collection, a father and daughter build a life for themselves on an isolated beach, only to collide painfully with the outside world when their secret refuge is discovered. A young disabled woman opts to receive a perfect, pain-free body, but soon finds herself haunted by the one she cast off.

Born in Hampshire, and raised in Hertfordshire, Lottie Mills studied English at Newnham College, Cambridge. She was named BBC Young Writer of the Year in 2020 for her short story ‘The Changeling’, included in this collection.

Mask wearing is preferable for all who can when attending the event. Masks and hand sanitiser will also be available in store.

We will be recording the event on the night for anyone unable to attend in person.

Ticket price includes refreshments and you can purchase the book with your ticket or on the night.
