Part of the Topping & Company Year of Picador
Join award winning novelist Emma Donoghue as she discusses her latest book Room. Inspired by cases of kidnapping and confinement from around the world Room tells the story of Jack and ‘Ma’, who live in a locked room. When Jack turns five he starts to ask questions and his mother reveals to him that there is a world outside their room.

Told entirely in Jack’s voice, Room is a moving exploration of human resilience, the intimate bond between between mother and child, and the assumptions we all make about the world around us. Powerful and engrossing, funny and yet brutal in its honesty.

This is a wonderful opportunity to spend the evening with the author of what is sure to be one of the books of the year.
