Patrick Ness- And the Ocean Was Our Sky
Thursday 13th September 19:00 - 21:00 at Norwich - Castle Street
We are thrilled to announce that the wonderful Patrick Ness will be at Waterstones Norwich to celebrate his latest novel And the Ocean Was Our Sky!
Patrick Ness has won every major prize for children’s literature, including the Carnegie Medal, twice. His Carnegie winning book A Monster Callswas 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 Walkingtrilogy, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, is also set for the movie treatment, with The Bourne Identity’sDoug Liman directing, and Spiderman: Homecoming’s Tom Holland and Star Wars: The Force Awakens’Daisy Ridley to star.
Join us for a chaired discussion with Patrick as he discusses his latest novel And The Ocean Was Our Sky. As with all of 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.
