Laura Legge signing Cala
LAURA LEGGE will be signing CALA at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 4th April 6 – 7pm!
Cala, a stone farmhouse on the edge of Pullhair in the Outer Hebrides, is home to four women – witches the locals say – who scratch out a living on its land. But after ten years of relative harmony, fractures are beginning to appear among them.
Eighteen-year-old Euna is tired of Cala’s rigid hierarchy and arbitrary rules – the women may only speak in Gaelic, must wear plain dress, attend strict rituals and consume only what they grow or gather with their hands. Sick of scavenged seaweed and thin soup, Euna decides to go in search of a different way of living.
Laura Legge lives and writes in Toronto. She is the winner of the 2016 PEN International New Voices Award. This is her first novel. Laura is a dual Canadian-Scottish citizen, and in Cala she mines her Scottish roots through language, music, and spirituality.
