Speaker: Jessie Burton
Jessie Burton was born in 1982. She studied at Oxford University and the Central School of Speech and Drama, and has worked as an actress and a PA in the City. She now lives in south-east London, not far from where she grew up. The Miniaturist was one of the hottest books at the 2013 Book Fair, with rights deals in 32 other countries. Since then the title has become something of a publishing phenomenon storming to the top of the best seller lists in both hardback and paperback, as well as winning New Writer of the Year and overall Book of the Year in the National Book Awards. Company Pictures in London have optioned TV rights to the book.
Jessie will talk about her debut novel, The Miniaturist, and her life-changing year.More Information
