Sophie Hannah: Closed Casket & 100 years of Poirot

December 2, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


We are THRILLED to welcome Sophie Hannah to the shop on Friday, December 2nd at 7:00PM. This event will be a part of Sophie’s US Closed Casket & 100 years of Poirot Tour, and we hope you can join us in giving her a warm Mystery Lovers’ welcome!

Sophie will be giving a talk titled, “Agatha, Poirot and Me,” detailing her lifelong enthusiasm for Agatha Christie, how she came to meet Christie’s family, and how she got commissioned to write the new Poirot novels, which she will also discuss.

The newest book in the new Poirot series, CLOSED CASKET, came out in September from William Morrow. You can pick up a copy at the shop or on our website 😉 Sopie will do a Q&A after her talk and sign books.

“What I intend to say to you will come as a shock…”

With these words, Lady Athelinda Playford — one of the world’s most beloved children’s authors — springs a surprise on the lawyer entrusted with her will. As guests arrive for a party at her Irish mansion, Lady Playford has decided to cut off her two children without a penny . . . and leave her vast fortune to someone else: an invalid who has only weeks to live.

Among Lady Playford’s visitors are two strangers: the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and Inspector Edward Catchpool of Scotland Yard. Neither knows why he has been invited — until Poirot begins to wonder if Lady Playford expects a murder. But why does she seem so determined to provoke a killer? And why — when the crime is committed despite Poirot’s best efforts to stop it — does the
identity of the victim make no sense at all?

*This event is FREE. Light refreshments will be served.*
