The glorious art deco setting of The Royal Toby hotel perfectly sets the scene for our acclaimed guest, Sophie Hannah, to talk about her life and career. Join her for an entertaining and insightful talk about her work with and for the Christie family, writing Hercule Poirot novels, and what it’s like being Agatha Christie’s continuation novel writer.
The session uncovers how Sophie approached the formidable task of continuing the stories of one of literature’s greatest detectives, and her thoughts on Christie’s writing, style and plotting.
‘A literary marriage made in heaven – Sophie Hannah and Agatha Christie. The plot and setting are pure Christie, but with an extra layer of bamboozlement and a superbly mysterious atmosphere.’ The Times on The Mystery of Three Quarters
