Celebrated author, David Mitchell, addressed our gathering of librarians with humor, esteem, and the masterful storytelling for which we all adore him.
Librarians have been “a guiding hand” throughout his life and career. And it all began with a lost little boy finding refuge in the library and The Very Hungry Caterpillar![youtube lxq-FEyXl5U&list=UU6aKZJ5BobqgmxQGLVBlVZw=]
“Curiouser and curiouser…mind-bending, interlocking tales that are reminiscent of a (very) adult version of Alice in Wonderland…[The Bone Clocks] won’t disappoint.”—Library Journal (Editor’s Pick)
“A globe-trotting, time-bending epic that touches down in, among other places, England, Switzerland, Iraq, and Australia…Is The Bone Clocks the most ambitious novel ever written, or just the most Mitchell-esque?…From gritty realism to far-out fantasy, each section has its own charm and surprises. With its wayward thoughts, chance meetings, and attention to detail, [David] Mitchell’s novel is a thing of beauty…. The less said about the plot the better, but fans of Mitchell’s books will be thrilled, and may even bump into a few characters they’ve met before.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Trademark Mitchell…another exacting, challenging and deeply rewarding novel from [the] logophile and time-travel master.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
