Actions and Detail Panel
Ex Libris LIVE Jasper Fforde, Kim Newman, Maureen Freely and Lisa Dickenson
Mon 5 December 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
For this month’s fabulously, bookish, bluffing game show, we have:
Jasper Fforde is the critically acclaimed and bestselling author of the genre bending Thursday Next novels, as well as the brilliant dystopian Shades of Grey series (not to be confused), and The Last Dragonslayer, the film adaptation of which Sky will release on Christmas Day.
Lisa Dickenson is an award winning author of wonderfully comic, romance novels. In true Yultide spirit, her much awaited book. Mistletoe on 34th Street, will add a spark of humour and magic to the Christmas season.
Kim Newman, aka Jack Yeovil, is an expert on horror and sci-fi cinema, as well as an award winning author whose work includes the irreverently referential Anno Dracula and, his latest novel, the witty and thrilling Angels of Music.
Maureen Freely is not only a journalist, a novelist, a professor of literature, and a translator but she is also the President of English PEN, the founding centre of the global writers’ association that promotes freedom of expression and literature across frontiers
Come and watch these extraordinary word smiths, cross pens as they bluff and counter bluff in Ex Libris LIVE! the entertaining panel show adaptation of Ex Libris, the game of first lines and last words. While panelists set about writing fake but plausible opening or closing sentences to genuine books, the Ex Libris LIVE! host, broadcaster David Freeman, will interview, in turn, each contender discussing their recent work. Join us for an entertaining evening of bluffing, entertaining chit-chat and outright literary sneakiness!
