Charlaine Harris UK Appearances

February 12, 2010 by  

Charlaine Harris, whose Sookie Stackhouse novels spawned our beloved True Blood, will be making several appearances in the United Kingdom from March 9 to 10, 2010 as a guest speaker and to sign her books.  Here’s a chance to meet the woman whose creative mind brought us the crazy Southern world of Sookie and her supernatural companions!

Harris’ first appearance will be in London at the Prince Charles Theater on Tuesday, March 9 at 6:30 PM.  She will be a guest speaker and signing copies of her books at the event.  Tickets for the event are £8 (about $15.50) and may be purchased via telephone (020 7494 3654), in person, or at the theater’s website:

Waterstone’s booksellers will host Harris’ second and third appearances.  The second will be at the Nottingham Bridlesmith Gate store on Wednesday, March 10 from 12 – 2 PM.  The event is free, and Harris will sign two books maximum per person.  Also on Wednesday, March 10, Harris will make her third and final free UK appearance signing books at the Dean’s Gate Waterstone’s in Manchester at 7 PM.  The store advises that you arrive early to gain access to the queue (or, line, as we Americans call it) which is on a first come, first served basis.

What a great opportunity to meet the woman behind the stories and to take that trip to England you have always wanted!
