An evening with Joanne Harris & Catriona Ward & Caroline Corcoran

Monday 16th May 2022
18:30 - 20:00 at Waterstones, Liverpool

Join us for a fantastic evening with three bestselling authors, Joanne Harris, Catriona Ward and Caroline Corcoran.
 
 
Following two relatively niche novels, Joanne Harris achieved worldwide acclaim with her self-proclaimed ‘funny little book’ Chocolat, a delicious tale of belonging and temptation of which the Literary Review famously asked, ‘is this the best book ever written?’ Further tales in the Chocolat universe followed, but Harris has wasted no time in spreading her very capable wings into other genres, including the YA universe of the Rune series (written as Joanne M. Harris) and even a Doctor Who novella. Her Malbry series – based around the exploits at St Oswald’s Grammar school in the fictional town of Malbry – plays perfectly to Harris’s strengths, combining deft characterisation with a typically nuanced, multi-layered narrative. The latest in the Chocolat sequence, The Strawberry Thief, was published in 2019.


Catriona Ward was born in Washington, D.C. and lives in London and Devon. Her first novel, Rawblood (published in the United States as The Girl from Rawblood), was published in 2015. Catriona writes novels and short stories, and reviews for various publications. She won the August Derleth Award for Best Horror Novel in 2016 at the British Fantasy Awards for Rawblood, and again in 2018 for Little Eve, making her the first woman to win the prize twice. Little Eve also went on to win the prestigious Shirley Jackson Award for best novel.

Her next gothic thriller, The Last House on Needless Street, was published through Viper Books (an imprint of Serpent's Tail) in March 2021, and Tor Nightfire (Tor Books) in the US, in September 2021.
Andy Serkis and Jonathan Cavendish’s The Imaginarium Productions has optioned film rights to the book.
