Fri, 9 October 7:30pm

The Reacher Guy is a life of bestselling, multi-award winning superstar Lee Child.  It tells the story of how the boy from Birmingham, who studied Law at the University of Sheffield, became the strongest brand in publishing, selling over one hundred million books in more than forty languages. It reveals the man behind the myth, tracing his extraordinary career until the climactic moment when, in 2020, having written twenty-four books, he finally floats free of his fictional creation.

“The best thriller writer of the moment” The New York Times

Dr Heather Martin read Languages at Cambridge and is a long-time Reacher fan.   The Reacher Guy is her first biography.
