Host Sophie Hannah for a Poirot Event
Calling all London indies: Sophie Hannah is available for a special Independent Bookshop Week event on the evening of Saturday 27 June.
 
The world’s greatest detective, Hercule Poirot—legendary star of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile—will be returning this August to solve a fiendish new mystery in The Killings at Kingfisher Hill. This is Sophie Hannah’s fourth, and much anticipated, Poirot continuation novel, with the first three praised across the media and loved by Poirot fans old and new. 2020 also celebrates 100 years since Poirot’s very first appearance, and sees the release of Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile film in October, so a big year for the Belgian detective! Sophie is a long-standing Christie fan and is an absolute authority on her novels – she has fascinating insights into Christie’s timeless appeal and always entertains crowds. This will be an exciting opportunity to learn more about The Killings at Kingfisher Hill pre-publication, hear an exclusive reading of the first chapter, and discuss all things Christie with Sophie.
