Joanne Harris

We're delighted to announce that Joanne Harris (MBE) has joined the board of patrons at IDAS.

Joanne is an author, best known for her award-winning novel Chocolat (1999), which was made into an Oscar-nominated film starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp.

Her books are now published in over 50 countries and have won a number of British and international awards. She is an honorary Fellow of St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, has honorary doctorates in literature from the universities of Sheffield and Huddersfield, and has been a judge for the Whitbread Prize, the Orange Prize, the Desmond Elliott Prize and the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science.

Joanne will be involved in some of our awareness raising events over the coming year.

I’m honoured to be an IDAS patron, and I’d like to help in any way I can.
