Jodi Picoult Sunday October 28 - 10/28/2018 11:00 am £18

£18 including a hardback copy of A Spark of Light

In a special post-Festival event, one of the world’s most popular writers – with over 25 million books sold across 35 countries – comes to the luxurious setting of Hurley House as part of a whistlestop UK tour.

Boasting the rare feat of her last eight novels debuting at number one in the New York Times bestseller list, US-based Jodi is a publishing phenomena and joins us in the week her latest book A Spark of Light is published. A powerful and provocative new novel about ordinary lives intersecting during a moment of heart-stopping crisis, with a timely take on women’s rights, each ticket includes a copy of the book (RRP £16.99).

Jodi will discuss the new book and her successful career which – in addition to her bestselling novels like My Sister’s Keeper, Nineteen Minutes and Small Great Things – has included writing Wonder Woman for DC Comics, two YA novels with her daughter and seen her books adapted for film, TV and the stage.
