Time Travelling with Patience Agbabi & Ben Miller
Ever wondered what it might be like to be a time traveller? Leap into a black hole or jump through time in this event with authors Patience Agbabi and Ben Miller, as they unleash their new books. In The Infinite, the first part of Patience’s new trilogy The Leap Cycle, you're introduced to Elle, a leapling who has the ability to hop back and forth through time. When other leaplings start to disappear Elle is forced into action and finds her gift tested to its limits.
Actor and comedian Ben Miller’s hilarious The Boy Who Made the World Disappear tells the story of Harrison, a boy trying his best to be good while struggling to control his temper. When he’s given a black hole instead of a balloon at a birthday party… well... you’ve seen the title...
Ben and Patience join author Faridah Àbíké-Íyímíde for a wide-ranging conversation about time travel and more.
This is a pre-recorded event.
