369: Named character in Philip Pullman’s THE BOOK OF DUST Part Two

ITEM: The right to name a character in the second part of THE BOOK OF DUST.
DETAILS: This book will follow the first part of THE BOOK OF DUST, ‘La Belle Sauvage’, which will be published in October this year. The second part (not yet titled) will follow next year. The right to name a character doesn’t guarantee that he or she will be good, bad, beautiful or otherwise, but it will be a speaking role with a part to play in the plot.
BIO: Philip Pullman is the author of HIS DARK MATERIALS, and winner of the Carnegie Medal, the Astrid Lindgren Award, the Whitbread (now Costa) Book of the year, and other awards.
WHO CAN BID: Worldwide.


  1. I expect this will go for a lot more (and I hope it does), but here goes: £1500.

    If this is still the leading bid on Tuesday, I’d like to call the character Nur Huda el-Wahabi.

    The real Nur Huda was an ex-pupil of mine who lived in Grenfell Tower and didn’t make it out of the building that night. A life that was so full of promise has been cut short in the most terrible way. As well as raising some money, this would mean her name would live on. Plus Nur Huda is a pretty cool name for a character.

    Please outbid me by lots though- it’s an important cause.

  2. We’re currently at £3400 as the highest bid for James Clements, in honour of the beautiful Nur Huda. ❤ My heart swells with pride, and I'm so thankful to be able to see this generosity play out. You are all stars.

    Let's keep it going. If you've already added to the bid, try and share this page. Anyone else want to add on? x


    • Whoops, more generous, wonderful people flooding in! Must’ve missed it before I posted. Apologies, the posts above me totalled to £3550 – if my calculations following Molly’s post were correct. 🙂


    • Even more, it’s £3600, dear Shelley. You, alongside everyone else on this page, are doing a wonderful, wonderful thing. ❤
