Joanne Harris : Author Talks

International bestselling author Joanne Harris first appeared on the scene with Chocolat, which was made into an Oscar-nominated film with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp.

Since then she has written 15 more novels, two novellas , two collections of short stories, and several screenplays. Born in Yorkshire, of an English father and a French mother, she spent fifteen years as a teacher before somewhat reluctantly becoming a full-time writer. A highly versatile author, accomplished in diverse genres including crime and fantasy, Joanne has a wonderful gift  for bringing compelling characters to life. Hear Joanne in conversation with broadcaster Maggie Lee taking about her portfolio of work  and her life.
