Known for her wit, empathy and soaring imagination, Jan Carson returns to the CCI for the launch of the French translation of her latest book, Les Ravissements (The Raptures), published by Sabine Wespieser éditeur.

When several children from the same village start succumbing to a mysterious illness, the quest to discover the cause has devastating and extraordinary consequences. The Raptures explores how tragedy can unite a small community - and tear it apart. As the world crumbles around her, one girl must find the courage to be different in a place where conforming feels like the only option available.

“Original, terrifying, hilarious and memorable.” (Sunday Times Ireland)

“Compassionate and meticulously observed” (The Guardian)
