Philip Reeve: Riding the Rails
Date/Time: Friday 3 February 2023 16:00-17:00
Age: 10 +
Session No: 123
In the Railhead series, Zen Starling rides the rails on the sentient trains criss-crossing the Galaxy, trying to work out exactly who he is; but the Great Network is a place of great dangers - especially for a petty thief like Zen, stealing to support his family and living by his wits. Everything changes when it seems that the key to the whole universe rests on finding out exactly who he is. Join Philip Reeve, master storyteller and world-builder, in this not-to-be-missed session for all who like to be immersed in a futuristic and utterly credible setting.
Award-winning writer Philip Reeve published his first novel Mortal Engines in 2001 and since then has written over 20 books, including the Railhead trilogy, the Utterly Dark historical fantasy series.
