An Evening with Markus Zusak

Friday 2nd November 18:30 at London - Piccadilly

At this exclusive London event, Markus Zusak – the award-winning, bestselling author of The Book Thief – will be joining us to discuss his first book in 12 years: Bridge of Clay.


An epic new novel, and a story told inside out and back to front, charting the lives of the Five Dunbar brothers. At once an existential riddle and a search for redemption, this tale of five brothers coming of age in a house with no rules brims with energy, joy and pathos. A true tour de force form a master storyteller that carries all of Zusak’s distinctive stylings, lyricism, and warmth.


The £18.99 book and ticket option includes an exclusive Bridge of Clay tote bag only available at Markus’ events, in addition to the copy of the book. The event will include a signing with Markus, in addition to the evening’s discussion.


Barney Norris will be chairing this event. Upon leaving university, Barney founded the Up In Arms theatre company, and went on to win the Critics’ Circle and Offwestend Awards for Most Promising Playwright for his debut full-length play, Visitors. Since then, his theatre credits also include Nightfall (The Bridge Theatre), While We’re Here (The Bush Theatre) and Eventide (The Arcola). His first novel, Five Rivers Met On A Wooded Plain, was a Times bestseller. His second novel, Turning For Home, was released earlier this year.

Please join us for this extremely exciting opportunity to hear from and meet Markus, as he introduces a novel ten years in the making.
