CRIME FICTION EVENT DUBLIN

Postby pip » Thu Aug 23, 2012 2:21 pm

For any around on the 6th of September in Dublin John Connolly is launching a collaberation book on crime fiction called 'Books To Die For' -http://www.bookstodiefor.net/
with Essays from over 120 of the worlds leading Crime writers and a few are already announced for the free launch in Dubray Books on Grafton Street on the 6th September. Got the following from John Connollys newsletter so might be a good chance to meet a few very good authors either here or in the Tour to follow :D There are quite a few very famous contributors so could be interesting - samples are

Michael Connelly on THE LITTLE SISTER...

Kathy Reichs on THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS...

Mark Billingham on THE MALTESE FALCON...

Ian Rankin on I WAS DORA SUAREZ...

Oh, and just a reminder that the launch of BOOKS TO DIE FOR in Dublin will be a lavish affair attended by a number of the contributors, including Declan and me, John Banville, Colin Bateman, Barbara Nadel, Arlene Hunt, Brian McGilloway, and more yet to be announced. It's a good chance to get some nice signed Christmas presents. Similarly, a number of the NI contributors will be present at the Belfast launch, including Paul Charles, Brian McGilloway, and others, and you never know who may crop up at some of the British events...
