Newark Book Festival is delighted to welcome award-winning author Joanne Harris to the Palace Theatre stage to discuss her compelling new novel, The Strawberry Thief. Published 20 years after the original, global bestseller which was adapted into the 2000 film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp, this is the latest in her Chocolat series. Vianne Rocher has finally settled down. Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, the place that once rejected her, has become her home. With Rosette, her 'special child', she runs her chocolate shop in the square, talks to her friends on the river and is truly part of the community. Even Reynaud the priest has become her friend. But when old Narcisse, the florist, dies, leaving a parcel of land to Rosette and a written confession to Reynaud, the life of the sleepy old village is once again thrown into disarray. Join us for this special opening night of the 2019 festival!
