An evening with Patrick Ness

Wednesday 19th September 19:00 at Assembly Roxy , 2 Roxburgh Pl, Edinburgh, EH8 9SU

Patrick Ness has won every major prize for children’s literature, including the Carnegie Medal, twice. His Carnegie winning book A Monster Calls was adapted for the screen in a major motion picture starring Felicity Jones, Liam Neeson and Sigourney Weaver, and this year appears on stage at The Old Vic as a theatrical production. His Chaos Walking trilogy, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, is also set for the movie treatment, with The Bourne Identity’s Doug Liman directing, and Spiderman: Homecoming’s Tom Holland and Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Daisy Ridley to star.

We are absolutely delighted to be able to welcome Patrick to the Assembly Roxy for a chaired discussion as he discusses his latest novel And The Ocean Was Our Sky. As with all Patrick’s novels, each one defies genre and takes a new and surprising turn and his new book is no exception. Inspired by Moby Dick, this stunning reimagining takes the perspective of the whale, turning the world upside down so the land of men becomes the abyss, and the ocean floor is their sky. Examining the power of prophecy and the relentless and hopeless nature of war, this modern fable will have much to examine for young people and adults alike. 

This is a ticketed event- booking is essential. Tickets are available online now.
