AOT #92: Joanne Harris Podcasts Runemarks
Joanne Harris, the bestselling author whose adult books include Chocolat and Five Quarters of the Orange, reads from and discusses her new novel for young readers Runemarks. Seven o’clock on a Monday morning, five hundred years after the end of the world, and goblins had been at the cellar, again. Not that anyone would admit it was goblins. In Maddy Smith’s world, order rules. Chaos, old gods, fairies, goblins, magic, glamours-all of these were supposedly vanquished centuries ago. But Maddy knows that a small bit of magic has survived, and in this epic romp she’ll need every scrap of forbidden magic if she is to survive her destiny.
