 Philip Pullman spoke at an event to save the six libraries of Brent, North-West London, on Thursday the 21st of July, to a packed audience of book lovers.

At the event, he read from his newest novel The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, talked with local author Maggie Gee, and answered audience questions.

Pullman has been incredibly outspoken about the library closures in Britain and recently managed a win against his own council of Oxfordshire, who decided to defer their plans to close 20 out of their 40 libraries to save money.
