An Evening with Lee Child at St. James’s Church Piccadilly
Thursday 21st November 19:00 at St. James's Church, 197 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9LL
Lee Child, one of the world’s leading thriller writers, will be joining us to celebrate the publication of his latest Jack Reacher novel Blue Moon, alongside the publication of his first work of non-fiction – The Hero.
The twenty fourth novel featuring ex-military policeman, Jack Reacher, Blue Moon is set in a nameless city, where two ruthless rival criminal gangs – one Albanian, the other Ukranian – are competing for control. In the next highly anticipated installment of the bestselling author’s acclaimed suspense series, Jack Reacher comes to the aid of an elderly couple . . . and confronts his most dangerous opponents yet.
In his first work of non-fiction, The Hero, Lee explores the endurance of heroes from Achilles to Bond, showing us how this age-old myth is a fundamental part of what makes us human. Allowing readers a glimpse into Lee’s private thoughts and world, this brilliantly argued essay promises and delivers a behind-the-scenes explanation of the values which helped Child to build Jack Reacher.
Lee Child is the recipient of many awards, most recently the CWA’s Diamond Dagger for a writer of an outstanding body of crime fiction. It is estimated that one of Lee’s books is sold every nine seconds.
Lee will be interviewed by Stig Abell, the editor of the TLS and Front Row presenter.
This event will include a signing with Lee Child. Exclusive ahead-of-publication copies of The Hero will also be available for purchase on the night.
