In Liz Harmer’s post-apocalyptic novel, The Amateurs, characters hide out in the abandoned mansions of a forgotten steel town. Book 4 of Scott Thornley’s MacNeice Mystery Series opens with the discovery of two bodies in a mansion of Dundurn’s old money neighbourhood under the mountain. Join the authors as they share their stories and discuss two very different versions of a re-imagined Hamilton. Moderated by Mark Osbaldeston, author of Unbuilt Hamilton.
