Sarah Pearse

In collaboration with Maryland Public Television, PBS Books is honored to host this virtual engagement event with author Sarah Pearse on August 31st as part of our dynamic, sequel partnership with The Library of Congress for the 2021 Library of Congress National Book Festival “Open a Book, Open the World.

Sarah Pearse grew up in Devon, UK, and studied English literature and creative writing at the University of Warwick before completing a postgraduate diploma in broadcast journalism. She lived in Switzerland for several years before returning to the UK. The Sanatorium, her debut novel, was an instant New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller, and was selected as a Reese's Book Club Pick. Her second novel, The Retreat, will be published by Pamela Dorman Books/Viking in April 2022.
