Join New Writing North and The Bound to celebrate a brand-new book from the bestselling author, Francis Spufford

Cahokia Jazz is a thrilling tale of murder and mystery in a city where history has run a little differently. It’s 1922, and Americans are drinking in speakeasies, dancing to jazz and stepping quickly to the tempo of modern times. Beside the Mississippi, the ancient city of Cahokia lives on, until a body found on the roof of a skyscraper sparks off a week that will spill the city’s secrets…

Chaired by Anna Disley.
