Jasper Fforde

PENELOPE BASS
7 pm., Friday September 13 | Free.
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing
3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd., Beaverton
 
With an affinity for literary allusion and a plucky female protagonist, British novelist Jasper Fforde rose to fame with his 2001 debut novel, The Eyre Affair, which starred his recurring literary detective, Thursday Next. He has since released six more books in the series, as well as a new series from the “Nursery Crimes Division,” and his perhaps unfortunately titled Shades of Grey series. He is releasing his newest book from his collection for young readers, The Dragonslayer Trilogy, as well as promoting the latest Thursday Next installation, The Woman Who Died a Lot.
