Philip Pullman: In conversation
In November, Liverpool Literary Festival will be hosting an event in conversation with Philip Pullman. He has published many books for adults and children and is best known for the His Dark Materials trilogy.
Northern Lights won a Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, a British Book Award, and the Carnegie of Carnegies Award 2007. The Amber Spyglass was the first children’s book to win the Whitbread (now the Costa) Book of the Year. Previous books also include The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ and Grimm Tales.
His forthcoming book series The Book of Dust, is a story in three parts. The first part, La Belle Sauvage, is set 10 years before the events of His Dark Materials.
On Thursday, 23 November Philip will be in conversation with Professor Dinah Birch talking about La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One at St George’s Hall, Liverpool.
