Canongate's celebrated The Myths series brings together some of the world's finest writers each of whom has retold a myth in a contemporary and memorable way.

In The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, Philip Pullman - the award-winning author of His Dark Materials - offers a spellbinding retelling of the life of Jesus, possibly the most influential story ever told.

Pullman's radical new take on the myths and mysteries of the gospels, and of the church that has shaped the course of the last two millennia, asks the reader questions that will continue to reverberate long after the final page is turned. For, above all, this is a book about how stories become stories.

Pullman has said that his new book is part novel, part history and part fairy tale. Today he discusses it for the first time.

Prices for this event vary from £35 to £10
