  • Meet the Author: David Mitchell SOLD OUT

    Meet the Author: David Mitchell SOLD OUT

    18 Jun 2015 19:00

    On Thursday 18th June Dulwich Books is honoured to host an event with David Mitchell.


    Storyteller extraordinaire, twice shortlisted and once longlisted for the Booker prize. He writes literary, audaciously structured and fantastical novels with a flair and wit that makes them a joy to read. This is your opportunity to meet the bestselling author of ‘Cloud Atlas’ and ‘The Bone Clocks’ in an intimate and laid back event. 


    His latest novel, ‘The Bone Clocks,’ was longlisted for the 2014 Booker Prize and is an epic sweep of a book, starting in 1984 and ending in 2043, weaving in and out of the life of Holly Sykes, shot through with magical threads, literary establishment nods, and a healthy dose of villainy.


    At the event David will be interviewed by arts journalist and author Laura Barnett whose forthcoming novel ‘Versions of Us’ is hotly tipped as one of this year’s breakthrough debut novels.
