FANS OF thriller writer Michael Connelly and the Amazon Prime series based on his character Bosch may be interested in a special book launch the author is attending in Harrogate next month.
Presented by Harrogate International Festivals, an Evening with Michael Connelly is at 7.30pm on 18 October at the Crown Hotel. Attendees will be able to get his new book, The Wrong Side of Goodbye, on the day of its UK release. Connelly will be holding a book signing afterwards.
Gemma Rowland, Operations Manager at Harrogate International Festivals, which delivers the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, said: ‘Our crime writing festival is considered the best in the world. Michael Connelly routinely comes up as one of the most popular authors audiences want to see in Harrogate. It’s an honour that he has chosen Harrogate to appear on the date his book launches. The ticket price of £25 is also brilliant value. It includes a copy of the new hardback, which costs £19.99.’
