In conversation with…. Christine de Luca

The Scottish Network for Religion and Literature hosts their next event in their 'In conversation with...' series. Following her hugely popular appearance at the Winter Tales Book Festival in December, Christine de Luca will discuss her work and the significance of religious themes within it.
