An Evening With Best-Selling Author Joanne Harris

Thursday 28th April 2016
18:30 at Waterstones, Liverpool

Join us as we welcome to Liverpool internationally accalimed and best-selling author Joanne Harris ("Chocolat", "Five Quarters of the Orange") as she reads from and discusses her latest novel, the dark psychological thriller "Different Class".

After thirty years at St Oswald's Grammar in North Yorkshire, Latin master Roy Straitley has seen all kinds of boys come and go. Each class has its clowns, its rebels, its underdogs, its 'Brodie' boys who, whilst of course he doesn't have favourites, hold a special place in an old teacher's heart. But every so often there's a boy who doesn't fit the mould. A troublemaker. A boy with hidden shadows inside. With insolvency and academic failure looming, a new broom has arrived at the venerable school, bringing Powerpoint, sharp suits and even sixth form girls to the dusty corridors. But while Straitley does his sardonic best to resist this march to the future, a shadow from his past is stirring. A boy who even twenty years on haunts his teacher's dreams. A boy capable of bad things.

Joanne will be discussing her latest novel with horror writer and master of suspense Ramsey Campbell.
