WORLD-RENOWNED author Philip Pullman CBE will head to Heswall next week to sign copies of his latest trilogy ‘The Book of Dust’.

The 71-year-old novelist from Norfolk created best-sellers such as Northern Lights and The Amber Spyglass and will head to Linghams Booksellers on Friday, November 24 at 10am.

Philip studied at Exeter College in Oxford and began teaching children aged nine to 13 at Bishop Kirk Middle School in Summertown.

In 1972, his debut published work 'The Haunted Storm' was the joint-winner of the English Library’s Young Writer’s Award.

He stopped teaching in 1986 after publishing 'The Ruby in the Smoke' until 1988 when he returned part-time at Westminster College.

His most notable work Northern Lights (known as The Golden Compass in America) published in 1995, saw Philip win the annual Carnegie Medal and Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize.

Since receiving a CBE in the New Year’s Honours list in 2004, Philip continues to lecture and write children’s novels.

Penning the companion to the ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy ‘The Book of Dust’ in 2008, the book touches on research into dust and addresses consciousness.

The Linghams event is £20 per ticket and includes a copy of his latest book.

This is a ticketed event only and only a limited number of spaces.
