Join author Joanna Cannon in The Salberg Studio at Salisbury Playhouse as she discusses her bestselling debut novel The Trouble with Goats and Sheep and her forthcoming second novel, Three Things About Elsie.
Joanna Cannon is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling debut novel The Trouble with Goats and Sheep, which has sold over 250,000 copies in the UK alone and has been published in 15 countries. The novel was longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize, shortlisted for The Bookseller Industry Awards 2017 and won the 2016 BAMB Reader Awards Breakthrough Author category. Joanna has been interviewed in The Guardian, The Observer, The Sunday Times, The Times and Good Housekeeping magazine, and her writing has appeared in the Sunday Telegraph, Daily Mail and the Guardian, amongst others. She has appeared on the BBC News Channel’s Meet the Author, interviewed on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 5, and is a regular at literary festivals across the country including Edinburgh and Cheltenham. Joanna left school at fifteen with one O-level and worked her way through many different jobs – barmaid, kennel maid, pizza delivery expert – before returning to school in her thirties and qualifying as a doctor in her forties. Her work as a psychiatrist and interest in people on the fringes of society continue to inspire her writing, and Joanna currently volunteers for Arts for Health, an organisation bringing creative arts to NHS staff and patients. Joanna Cannon’s second novel Three Things About Elsie is published in January 2018 and explores memory, friendship and old age. She lives in the Peak District.
