Author to Author Special

with Joanne Harris Author of Chocolat

12 January 2022

We have a very special Goldster Book Club event to welcome in the new year. At 6pm on Wednesday 12th January, Lucinda Hawksley will be chatting online to Joanne Harris, the award-winning author of 19 novels, including Chocolat, Blackberry Wine and The Strawberry Thief. Her novels also include four psychological thrillers, including Gentlemen & Players and Different Class. Chocolat was turned into an Oscar-nominated movie, starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. 

Joanne was born to a French mother and an English father, and in addition to having written several novels set in France, she has also written books on French cookery, including – of course! – a book on cooking with chocolate. Her latest books include the enchanting "mosaic novel" Honeycomb and a non-fiction book, perfect for all aspiring writers: Ten Things About Writing. She has also written novellas (including one about Doctor Who), short stories, screenplays, game scripts, libretti for two short operas, and a musical. Joanne is also a passionate advocate for authors’ rights, and is currently the Chair of the Society of Authors (SOA) and a member of the Board of the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS). 

Join Joanne Harris as she chats to Goldster Book Club Presenter and fellow author Lucinda Hawksley at 6pm GMT on Wednesday 12th January.
