Opening a book and immediately seeing a map can only mean one thing: a great adventure lies ahead. Whether it’s a sprawling fantasy epic or a swashbuckling high-seas tale, maps can transport readers to faraway lands and display wondrous new worlds.
In this panel event, we’ll discuss maps in fiction, such as the works of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, as well the fascinating history of maps, both fictional and real. Panellists include author and academic Jerry Brotton, best-selling fantasy and science fiction author Adrian Tchaikovsky and fantasy cartographer Greg Shipp.
