The Strawberry Thief

Joanne Harris

Date and time

St James


Joanne Harris’s 1999 novel Chocolat sold over a million copies in the UK alone and was turned into a film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. 21 years on, Harris has written her fourth Chocolat novel. The Strawberry Thief takes readers back to the familiar world of Lasquenet-sous-Tannes. When a mysterious new shop opens across the square, one that strangely mirrors Vianne Rocher’s, change is in the air – and possibly even murder. Anglo-French writer Joanne is the author of 10 more novels, many short stories and two cookbooks.
