Louise Doughty: Platform Seven
Louise Doughty is the author of the smash-hit Apple Tree Yard, a Sunday Times Top 10 bestselling novel and flagship BBC One four-part series starring Emily Watson. The multi award-winning writer and UEA alumna returns to Norwich for the launch of her latest book Platform Seven; a gripping, brilliant, original and eerily-timely story set at night in an empty railway station.
