Event description

Description

Join us as we celebrate publication day of Philip Pullman's new novel with an informal discussion of La Belle Sauvage in preparation for the powerful adventures that lie ahead in Lyra and Malcolm's lives.

In 2017, Philip Pullman almost teasingly referred to the new sequence of novels as an ‘equel’, rather than anything so conventional as a sequel.

Set in the world so masterfully established by Philip Pullman in his trilogy His Dark Materials, La Belle Sauvage is a story of survival, secrets, intrigue and vengeance, exploring the beginning of Lyra's story.

In The Secret Commonwealth: The Book of Dust Volume Two, we finally begin to understand the full meaning of his intent, the upcoming book picking up the climactic strands of The Amber Spyglass, seven years on, whilst simultaneously drawing on the stage set by La Belle Sauvage, twenty years earlier.

Refreshments will be provided. Contact us to book your free place and pre-order your copy of The Secret Commonwealth ahead of publication on 3 October.
