An Afternoon with John Connolly

Sunday 10th September 15:00 at Newcastle City Library, 33 New Bridge St W, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 8AX

*Please note the change of date and time*

Newcastle favourite John Connolly is back! John will be joining us for the evening in the City Library to discuss and sign copies of his exciting new novel 'He'.

"An extraordinary reimagining of the life of one of the greatest screen comedians the world has ever known: a man who knew both adoration and humiliation; who loved and was loved in turn; who betrayed and was betrayed; who never sought to cause pain to others yet left a trail of affairs and broken marriages in his wake...and whose life was ultimately defined by one relationship of such tenderness and devotion that only death could sever it: his partnership with the man he knew as Babe. he is Stan Laurel. But he did not really exist. Stan Laurel was a fiction.

With he, John Connolly recreates the golden age of Hollywood for an intensely compassionate study of the tension between commercial demands and artistic integrity, the human frailties behind even the greatest of artists, and one of the most enduring and beloved partnerships in cinema history: Laurel & Hardy."

Tickets for the event are £5, or £3 to Waterstones loyalty card holders and are available in store or online at waterstones.com/events

Ticket prices include a complimentary soft drink.
