About this Event:

His Dark Materials author Philip Pullman talks to Sunday Times chief fiction reviewer Peter Kemp about his favourite classic fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm. He explains the background to the stories and discusses why they have lasted so long and become such a big part of our collective storytelling imagination.

Pullman recently published a collection of his 50 favourite Brothers Grimm tales retold in his own unique voice. The collection includes romantic favourites such as Rapunzel, Snow White and Cinderella but also some lesser known tales such as The Three Snake Leaves, Hans-my-Hedgehog and Godfather Death.

Pullman writes mostly for children. He is best known for the His Dark Materials trilogy, which was turned into the Hollywood film The Golden Compass. His other work includes a series featuring Victorian adventurer Sally Lockhart that opens with Ruby in the Smoke.

In association with Oxford University Department for Continuing Education and Kellogg College, Oxford.
