Come and meet legendary storyteller Neil Gaiman at his first public event for The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Neil will be interviewed on stage, and the event will be followed by a book signing where audience members will have the opportunity to collect advance copies of his new book, his first novel for adults since his Sunday Times bestseller Anansi Boys in 2005.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a brilliantly imaginative and poignant fable, praised as a novel “about memory and magic and the darkness that lives without and within”. It tells the story of a family threatened by dark shadows from the past, which stir up ancient forces and awaken otherworldly creatures. But there is hope at the end of the lane, where three mysterious women claim that their duckpond is an ocean.
Each audience member will be allowed one personalised copy of The Ocean at the End of the Lane signed by Neil after the event, plus a maximum of three extra copies just with a signature.
The full price of your voucher is an advance book deposit against a copy of the book featured at the event. Event vouchers are redeemable at any point up to and including the day of the event, but not afterwards.
Reading Group vouchers are only valid on the evening of the meeting and can be redeemed against any book on our shelves.
In order to maintain the great value of our events, we have to reduce administration to an absolute minimum. This means that we aren’t able to refund or exchange event book vouchers.
Meeting people at the bookshop is the best part of being a bookseller, so the discounted price for collection in advance is a little incentive for you to come and visit us before the day of the event itself!
