J.K. Rowling

This event has already taken place.

Host: Cheltenham Literature Festival
Location: The Centaur, Cheltenham Racecourse, Cheltenham, GL50 4SH
Speaker: J.K. Rowling

J. K. Rowling returns to the Festival to discuss her first novel for adults. Pagford is apparently an English idyll – but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. In The Casual Vacancy J. K. Rowling has written a big novel about a small town, as a parish council election becomes fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations. A storyteller like no other, she joins James Runcie for a rare appearance to discuss her writing and take questions about her new novel.
