This is an online event.

Terry Pratchett’s novels created a new world where fantasy, science-fiction, humour and satire coexisted, firing the imagination of millions of readers all over the world. Join this live conversation event with Neil Gaiman, Rhianna Pratchett and Rob Wilkins as they explore the fantastical Discworld universe of characters and plots where magical and mechanical technology go hand in hand.

Neil Gaiman is an international bestselling writer and co-author with Pratchett of Good Omens. Rob Wilkins is the producer of Good Omens and Pratchett’s long-term friend, assistant and manager of his estate. Rhianna Pratchett is the daughter of Terry Pratchett and is a BAFTA nominated Scriptwriter and Story Designer, as well as a previous winner of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain ’Best Videogame Script’ award. 

Come along to enjoy Pratchett’s legacy, which despite his premature death from Alzheimer’s in 2015, is very much alive as his work continues to inspire new generations of readers and book lovers.

For the Being Human festival, Senate House Library and the Institute of English Studies will also be running the workshop ‘Stories of Imagination: Exploring Terry Pratchett’s Archive’ on Thursday 19 November between 18:00 and 19:00. This event requires separate booking.
