Event: GRIMM TALES: TELLING STORIES with Neil Gaiman and Philip Pullman


From Neil Gaiman's blog:

I'll be in Conversation with Philip Pullman, talking about fairy tales and writing, on October the 29th at London's Cambridge Theatre. Details are at See Tickets and tickets are going ridiculously fast, which is why I thought I'd better nip on and mention it now.

And from See Tickets:

Please note: this event is suitable for children aged 12 and over.

Philip Pullman in conversation with Neil Gaiman

'Swiftness is a great virtue in the fairy tale.
All we need is the word "Once." and we're off'

5x15 and Penguin Books invite you to discover the dark fascination of fairy tales at a unique evening with two of the world's greatest storytellers.

To celebrate the publication of Grimm Tales for Young and Old, Philip Pullman's enchanting new retelling of the Grimm Brothers' stories of wicked deeds and otherworldly romance, this one-off event will bring together the award-winning authors, Philip Pullman and Neil Gaiman. This is an unmissable opportunity to hear two of the most distinctive voices in modern fiction discuss their own work and the enduring appeal of fairy tales, along with a reading from the book by Philip Pullman.

The event will take place in the magical surroundings of the Cambridge Theatre, home to the West End production of Matilda - a fitting setting for an evening dedicated to the power of books and stories - making it a perfect Halloween night out for older children and adults alike.

There will be a limited signing after the event, for books purchased on the night.
