In Conversation With Anthony Horowitz 27th October, 7pm - 8.30pm, £10, £8 concessions
Three years ago the Conan Doyle estate, gave BAFTA-winning writer, Anthony Horowitz O.B.E, permission to tell a new Sherlock Holmes story. The result was House of Silk, in which an elderly Dr. Watson recounts one of Holmes's early adventures. Positive reviews encourage Horowitz to continue the journey with a sequel entitled Moriarty, set just a few days after Homes and Moriarty fall to their deaths at Reichenbach Falls. Due to be released on the 23rd October, Horowitz will talk about the new novel and follow with a book signing.

Hello Bryony, I think I have mastered the art of sending comments to London! Should make me a shoe-in for the Holmes Museum (more likely as an artefact). I would love to be in London for this (or for anything for that matter). I have read all the Holmes stories and didn't know two new ones have been written. I'll have to start looking out for them. Thanks for a great article. Regards, Tony
