Award-winning author Yann Martel will visit St Andrews tomorrow (Thursday 12 December) as part of the University’s Booker Prize Project.
The visit marks the fifth anniversary of the collaboration that provides every new entrant undergraduate with a copy of a novel recently shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction. Fittingly, Martel’s book Life of Pi was not only shortlisted, but won the Prize in 2002
In addition to delivering a public reading, the author will give a private ‘Master Class’ to Creative writing students of the University earlier in the day.
As with previous events, the reading will be followed by an ‘in conversation’ with the Principal and questions from the floor, followed by a book signing session. The event is open to all on a first-come, first served basis, no tickets are required.
Yann Martel will appear at 5.15pm on Thursday 12 December, in School III, St Salvator’s Quadrangle.
