Where the World Ends

Geraldine McCaughrean

St Kilda is an archipelago of islands and sea stacs, and the most remote outpost of the British Isles. In the summer of 1727, a group of fowlers are put ashore on a remote sea stac to harvest birds for food. No one returns to collect them. Why? Surely nothing but the end of the world can explain why family and friends have abandoned them to endure storms and starvation? And how are they to survive, housed in stone and imprisoned on every side by the ocean?

Geraldine McCaughrean talks about her Carnegie Medal-winning novel, why she writes adventure, and how fragments of the Past are the perfect trellis up which to grow fiction; they have been the starting place for almost all her 20 very different novels. Where the World ends has been enjoyed by readers – male and female - ranging from 10 to 90.

Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult and present a valid ticket.
