Monday June 9th – 7.00pm-9.00pm
An Evening with Jasper Fforde.
We are thrilled to welcome bestselling author Jasper Fforde to the bookshop for a very special evening of book related fun.
Jasper Fforde spent twenty years in the film business before debuting on the New York Times Bestseller list with 'The Eyre Affair' in 2001. Since then he has written another six novels featuring his Literary Detective heroine Thursday Next, the latest in the series, 'The Woman Who Died a Lot' published last year.
Fforde's writing is an eclectic mix of genres, which might be described as a joyful blend of Comedy-SF-thriller-Crime-Satire. He freely admits that he fascinated not just by books themselves, but by the way we read and what we read, and his reinvigoration of tired genres have won him many enthusiastic supporters across the world.
Amongst Fforde's output are police procedurals featuring nursery rhyme characters, a series for Young Adults about Magic and Dragons set in a shabby world of failing magical powers, and 'Shades of Grey' a post-apocalyptic dystopia set three world orders into the future, where social hierarchy is based on the colours you can see.
Jasper’s only in London for a very short visit and it’s great he’s coming to the Bookshop. It should be a real treat.
Tickets, priced just £3 are available HERE and Jasper’s books will be available on the night at a discounted price.
This will sell out VERY quickly, so please make sure you buy tickets early.
