Local author and international bestseller Joanne Harris entertained an audience of almost 50 diners at The Keys restaurant last Friday night for the first Key Words ‘Dinner & Conversation With’ event.
Joanne said: “What a terrific event this was! The venue is one of Huddersfield’s hidden gems, the food excellent and the audience enthusiastic and congenial. I am very much looking forward to coming again as a spectator next time.”
The evening began with a delicious two-course meal and was followed by an ‘In Conversation’ conducted by Key Words’ Michelle Hodgson, before the floor was opened to questions from the audience.
As well as stories about meeting Ewan McGregor and the success of her novel Chocolat, Joanne explained the Norse myths that inspired her new novel Runelight, out this month.
Joanne received an enthusiastic reception and several audience members have already said they are planning to book for future events, which include crime fiction writer Sophie Hannah on 24 February 2012 and Iain Banks in April 2012.
