14th May 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm
The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle has been described as Gosford Park meets inception by way of Agatha Christie. From that killer pitch, it's clear that author Stuart Turton knows a thing or two about crafting a perfect novel that keeps the reader gripped (and guessing!) until the very last page.
We're equally as thrilled to be joined by Stuart himself for this one-off masterclass, where over the evening, the author will be sharing his practical advice on plotting your crime and thriller novel, how to drive momentum as well as the importance of research and method writing and establishing rules for your story. How can you weave in clues and layers of foreshadowing without revealing too much to the reader?
Refreshments will be provided and copies of Stuart's book will be available to purchase.
Stuart Turton is a freelance travel journalist who has previously worked in Shanghai and Dubai. The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle won the Books Are My Bag Readers Award for Best Novel and was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award. He lives in London with his wife and daughter.
The event will be held at Bloomsbury Publishing, 50 Bedford Square, London WC1B 3DP. Doors will open at 6pm, with drinks provided upon arrival.
Drinks will start at 6pm and the event with Stuart will begin at 6.30pm prompt, finishing at 8.30pm.
