Joanne Harris

Sunday 1.00-2.00, Bradenstoke Hall.

Bestselling author Joanne Harris won worldwide recognition with her novel Chocolat, shortlisted for the 1999 Whitbread Award and turned into a hugely successful film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. Since then all her books have been UK best-sellers. 

In 2007 she published Runemarks, first in series of mythpunk/fantasy novels aimed at both children and adults. Here Joanne talks about the latest Rune book, The Testament of Loki, and the influences on her work of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, local folklore and of course  Norse mythology.
