Jasper Fforde - One of Our Thursdays is Missing

Monday 21st February 2011 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event

SORRY, THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT

It's been over three years since we last entered the world of our beloved heroine Thursday Next, and now she's gone missing from Bookworld. In need of our ace literary detective to avert a devastating genre war, it's up to the written Thursday Next to save the real Thursday Next. Does the written Thursday have the ability to find and save her namesake? We're about to find out! Foyles is thrilled to welcome Swindon's much-loved author back to the Gallery for the first event of his world tour and the first opportunity to get your copy of One of Our Thursdays Is Missing.

Jasper's new novel opens at a time of unrest in the BookWorld. Only the diplomatic skills of ace literary detective Thursday Next can avert a devastating genre war. But a week before the peace talks, Thursday vanishes. Has she simply returned home to the RealWorld or is this something more sinister? All is not yet lost. Living at the quiet end of speculative fiction is the written Thursday Next, eager to prove herself worth of her illustrious namesake. The written Thursday is soon hot on the trail of her factual alter-ego, and quickly stumbles upon a plot so fiendish that it threatens the very BookWorld itself.

The Gallery at Foyles, Third Floor, 113 - 119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB

Kirsty Logan's second novel, The Gloaming, is a swirling tale threaded through with magic, heartbreak, love and mermaids. It is studded with evocative but perhaps unfamiliar words, adding atmosphere, mood and expression. Exclusively for Foyles, she has written about some of these Scottish words, that head up each chapter of the book.
