The New World by Patrick Ness is a gripping read so there’ll be loads to discuss at this month’s Oxplore Book Club Live!

Join us online from 4pm on Wednesday the 26th of May to share your thoughts on the book and send in your questions. The event will be hosted by 'Oxcentric' YouTuber and Oxford undergraduate, Sam Williamson, while our expert panel features the brilliant Chelsea Haith and Simona Bartolotta.

Both Chelsea and Simona research Sci-Fi and Speculative Fiction at the Faculty of English Language and Literature in Oxford, so be sure to ask them plenty of questions during the session!

A prequel to the hit ‘Chaos Walking Trilogy’, 'The New World' is a short story which explores complex themes and introduces us to key characters in the series.
