Man Booker Prize-winning author Graham Swift makes his long-awaited return to Pin Drop Studio at the Royal Academy of Arts on 9th February 2018.

This very special evening will feature a reading of Graham Swift’s short story, Haematology, from his critically acclaimed collection England & Other Stories against the backdrop of the landmark exhibition ‘Charles I: King and Collector’. Haematology draws on the divisions and conflict of the 17th century through the prism of a family torn apart in the aftermath of the execution of Charles I.

Graham Swift is one of the leading short story writers of his generation and the author of numerous award-winning novels including Waterland, Last Orders and Mothering Sunday.

The evening will include a conversation and audience Q&A with Swift, chaired by Pin Drop founder, Simon Oldfield.
