I chat with Joanne about her new book Honeycomb, the therapeutic effects of reading whilst undergoing hospital treatment, and how important good translations are.
I chat with the wonderful Joanne Harris MBE, an author across an incredible number of media. We chat about the therapeutic effects of reading and writing, how personifying illness can be beneficial and the ups and downs of translations. We have a very interting chat about reading as a bilingual, the joy of graphic novels, and sneaking those books your mother doesn’t want you to read at the library.
