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!

It was filmed…not too sure where to find it tho’. It’s not on Youtube,might be on FX channel. Was a great night! Come back soon Charlaine!!! 😀

    • Hi Louise,

      Thank you for sharing with us! You must have been so excited to meet her. What was the question you asked her and what was her response if you remember LOL! I know it can be hard to remember if you are in a daze. 🙂

        The question I asked was; Do you feel you can push the boundaries of certain topics considering your characters are well into adulthood?,and I said thankyou for writing a character that was around the same age as me, as I can relate to Sookie. And she opened her mouth in surprise and I quickly said that I have never had a vampire or supe turn up at my door, but I wouldn’t turn Alexander away if he turned up…to ripples of laughter from the audience and a chuckle from Charlaine!

  • The first link is wrong – it goes to the website of Prince Charles the heir to the throne!
    What you need is the Prince Charles Cinema –
