Jojo Moyes at The Dancehouse, Manchester, 3 October 2019, from £19.25 - Book now

The Dancehouse is hosting bestselling novelist and journalist, Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You (which has sold a staggering 14 million copies worldwide, and counting).

Jojo Moyes is celebrated as one of the most successful novelists of the 21st century. This evening will mark the publication of her brand-new, standalone novel, The Giver of Stars. She’ll answer questions about this new book and discuss how it felt to step away from her beloved characters from the global phenomenon that is her Me Before You trilogy.

Based on a true story set in Depression-era America, The Giver of Stars is a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond. The book is being described as Moyes’ best yet and draws the reader in to the complex relationships of these women and the powerful friendships they forge.

The novel is undoubtedly a celebration of the great strength that comes when women work together to support each other. The power in the pack is recognised as we experience the bravery and heartbreak of these women. Jojo says: “Society frames women as competitors rather than champions of one another and this is not the experience of most of the women I know. The Giver of Stars aims to celebrate these relationships.”

Jojo’s other books include the bestsellers Me Before You, After You and Still Me, The Girl You Left Behind, The One Plus One and her short story collection Paris for One and Other Stories. Her novels have been translated into 46 languages, have hit the number-one spot in 12 countries and have sold over 38 million copies worldwide.

You’ll have the opportunity to buy The Giver of Stars after the event, and Jojo will be doing a book signing.

Doors open at 6.30pm, and the event starts at 7.30pm.
