BLACKWELL’S OXFORD PRESENTS: An Evening with David Mitchell
Saturday, November 28th at 19:00 – 20:00
We are delighted to be hosting an intimate in store event with author David Mitchell to talk about his latest novel, Slade House.Described as ‘A gem of a novel from one of the most brilliantly inventive writers of this, or any country’ (The Independent) Slade House was born out of the short story that David created on Twitter in 2014 and takes place in the same universe as his bestselling The Bone Clocks. Enter the magical surrounds of Slade House and you’ll be greeted by a stranger who invites you inside. At first, you won’t want to leave. Later, you’ll find that you can’t. This unnerving and intricate tale reaches it’s breathtaking conclusion on Hallowe’en 2015, as every nine years on the last Saturday in October a ‘guest’ is invited/summoned to Slade House but why and for what purpose?
This very special event takes place in the Norrington Room of the shop and includes a complimentary glass of wine upon arrival. Tickets cost just £5 and can be purchased from the customer service desk or by calling 01865 333623.
