Event description
An Evening with Man Booker Prize-Winning Author Marlon James

About this Event

Sheridan Reads is delighted to welcome Marlon James as he releases his new novel of epic fantasy, Black Leopard, Red Wolf. Using myth, fantasy, and masterful storytelling to forge a dazzling new adventure, James has created a book Neil Gaiman describes as containing “a dangerous hallucinatory, ancient Africa, which becomes a fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made.”

Reading from and discussing his new work in conversation with Sheridan Professor and Giller-nominated author Thea Lim, Marlon James will also be taking audience questions and autographing books.

When: March 4, 2019 at 7:00pm

Where: The Marquee (Sheridan - Trafalgar campus)

This event is open to the public and seating is on a first come, first served basis. Spaces are limited, so be sure to register early to avoid disappointment.
