WOMEN YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
Two events make this weekend a goodie: International Women's Day and the launch of the inaugural Folio Prize Fiction Festival. There are events celebrating both occasions all weekend but tomorrow, the two overlap at On Reading Women, a discussion on literary heroines with authors Tessa Hadley and Frances Wilson, and literary critic Suzi Feay. There are still tickets left. Can't make it? Don't worry; Suzi has shared her favourite up-and-coming female fiction writers with us...
THE PALACE OF CURIOSITIES
BY ROSIE GARLAND (HARPERCOLLINS, £14.99)
