A Night in with Holly Black

Join New York Times bestselling YA and Children’s author Holly Black to mark the publication of her debut dark adult fantasy novel, Book Of Night

Charlie Hall has never found a lock she couldn’t pick, a book she couldn’t steal, or a bad decision she wouldn’t make.

She's spent half her life working for gloamists, magicians who manipulate shadows to peer into locked rooms, strangle people in their beds, or worse. Gloamists guard their secrets greedily, creating an underground economy of grimoires. And to rob their fellow magicians, they need Charlie Hall.

Now, she’s trying to distance herself from past mistakes, but getting out isn’t easy. Bartending at a dive, she’s still entirely too close to the corrupt underbelly of the Berkshires. Not to mention that her sister Posey is desperate for magic, and that Charlie's shadowless, and possibly soulless, boyfriend has been hiding things from her. When a terrible figure from her past returns, Charlie descends into a maelstrom of murder and lies.

Determined to survive, she’s up against a cast of doppelgangers, mercurial billionaires, gloamists, and the people she loves best in the world―all trying to steal a secret that will give them vast and terrible power

In conversation for this virtual event, Holly will explore the inspiration behind her new novel, set in the shadowy thieves and secret societies.

Holly’s hugely popular books have been translated into 32 languages worldwide, are global bestsellers and beloved of #BookTok, with over 567M hashtag uses for the Cruel Prince series, and featuring on all the ‘BookTok Made Me Buy It’ tables in bookshops and beyond. The Spiderwick Chronicles are soon to be adapted for Disney+.
