An Evening with Patrick Ness, Oxford

We are thrilled to announce that the brilliant Patrick Ness will be at Oxford University Museum of Natural History to celebrate his latest novel And the Ocean Was Our Sky.

From the multi-award-winning author of A Monster Calls comes a haunting tale of power and obsession that turns the story of Moby Dick upside down.

“Call me Bathsheba.” The whales of Bathsheba’s pod live for the hunt. Led by the formidable Captain Alexandra, they fight a never-ending war against men. Then the whales attack a man ship, and instead of easy prey they find the trail of a myth, a monster, perhaps the devil himself… With their relentless Captain leading the chase, they embark on the final hunt, one that will forever change the worlds of whales and men.

Tickets are available from and are £12.99, including a copy of And the Ocean Was Our Sky.
Non-book tickets are also available for £5.
