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. She will be in conversation with BBC journalist Sophie Van Brugen.

This event is now sold out. If you would like to join the waiting list, please call the box office on 01491 575948.
