As part of York Literature Festival, former mad scientist C.L. Spillard will read from "The Price Of Time" and will be interviewed by June Tranmer about the novel and how she came to write it. She poses the question, "What sort of twisted mind would infiltrate humanity’s higher echelons and cause them, using a fiendishly simple mechanism we all take for granted, to direct our species a headlong path to self-destruct?"
Hear how she survived the latest interrogation techniques, a reduction in core body temperature to 15 degrees C, and experiments in a dark Psychology lab, to find the answer!
TIME: 7:30-8:30 pm
