Doncaster Read - May & June 2018 Doncaster Read - May & June 2018

Introducing our May & June 2018 Doncaster Read

Joanne Harris (MBE)

For May and June we are featuring bestselling Barnsley author Joanne Harris (MBE). A time of Maypole dancing, the Summer Solstice and Midsummer’s Day, what better time to feature her books full of fantasy, folklore and change brought on the wind…

Her website introduces her as ‘Joanne Harris, test-driver of experimental dream machines, does a bit of writing’ and notes her hobbies as ‘mooching, lounging, strutting, strumming’, the latter a reference to her bass playing with the band she joined at 16. She still lives in Yorkshire and like Roald Dahl, she writes in a shed in the garden of the house she shares with her husband and daughter.

With multiple novels, short stories and cookbooks to her name, there’s surely something to tempt your literary appetite, even if it’s just Chocolat…
