Jasper Fforde: Early Riser

Saturday 9 March, 2pm-3pm

Al Baraha 1, InterContinental, DFC

Authors: Jasper Fforde
Jasper Fforde, the New York Times bestselling author of The Eyre Affair, Shades of Grey and more, takes us on adventure set in present-day Wales with an unusual twist: it is the dead of winter in an ice age, and most of the human population hibernates until spring.

During those bitterly cold four months, the nation is a snow-draped landscape of desolate loneliness . Charlie Worthing is a Winter Consul, part of a committed but mildly unhinged group of misfits responsible for protecting the sleeping masses.

Nothing can prepare Charlie for investigating a viral dream. They say there are no heroes in Winter, and Charlie is about to find out why.
