Event 10 Readers Meet Writers: Transformational Journeys

Friday 3 March, 1.30pm-2.30pm   Al Ras 2, InterContinental

Calling all book clubs! Our Festival Reading Group have been reading the fantastic books of three special Festival novelists – and now they are here to discuss their work in person. Why not choose them for your next meeting, and bring along questions of your own?

These very different authors, who have all written about transformational journeys, come together for a discussion of their work and an extended question and answer session with the audience.

Vaseem Khan’s unusual mystery The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra leads the eponymous inspector into the dark heart of Mumbai, aided by his unusual sidekick – a baby elephant called Ganesh.

Alan Titchmarsh’s latest book, Mr Gandy’s Grand Tour, features a man uprooted from his quiet routines to realise his abandoned dreams of a Grand Tour of Europe.

Eleanor Updale’s The Last Minute takes the reader on the most unusual journey of all – through the lives and minds of a town full of ordinary people in the minute before a terrible catastrophe.
