Feature: Margaret Atwood’s Book Reading, Hag-Seed

St Mary’s Church, Bathwick, is a beautiful building. Not, however, where one would expect to be directed if they were going to a book reading. Nestled in a corner of the Roman town, the church exudes the knowledge of its age: it is, after all, of medieval origins. This proved the perfect backdrop for a…
