Two Bath-based authors of thought-provoking, gulp-read thrillers come together for a compelling discussion about rules and radicalisation, against the backdrop of our current social landscape.

Tracy Darnton’s The Rules centres on teenage Amber who has been brought up and trained to be an extreme survivalist. When she tries to escape this way of life she must use the Rules she’s learned from her father to keep her safe and hidden – from him! 

Fifteen-year-old Josh in Luke Palmer’s Grow is struggling to cope with grief after his father is killed in a terrorist bombing and is targeted by a white supremacist group as a potential recruit. Will he be able to find the strength to resist the group’s violent leader and plant something good in the space grief has left inside him?
