Joanne Harris
The International Literary Festival Vilnius Pages hosts one of the most colourful British authors Joanne Harris.

Joanne Harris came to fame with her book Chocolat. It was her third novel which was soon turned into an Oscar nominee film. Chocolat and its sequels The Lollipop Shoes and Peaches for Monsieur le Curé are the reflection of the writer’s childhood memories of her grandparents’ confiserie, so is a mysterious atmosphere that comes from the time of her great-grandmother, a witch.
Joanne Harris has authored 16 novels, two collections of stories and two collections of short stories. She has written three cookbooks and a series for teenagers, the Rune books. Harris’ works have been published in more than 50 countries; her books have won multiple international awards.

Joanne Harris says her characters are far from perfect and therefore more interesting. She admits she herself likes to chat about nothing, pretend to be very intelligent, and tease priests. Having found music at the age of sixteen, the author still plays various musical instruments in a band.

Joanne Harris will be interviewed by Eglė Kačkutė-Hagan, a researcher of modern literature, who is particularly interested in women’s identities in contemporary British and French fiction by women, in transnationalism and multilingualism in literature. She is currently trying to look into contemporary narratives of migrant mothers.

This event is the result of cooperation with the British Council and the Lithuanian Culture Institute.
