Author Talk by Sophie Hannah "Agatha, Poirot & Me"
On 16 March 2023 we were delighted to host another author talk by Sophie Hannah; her previous one having taken place in 2012. Sophie's first Hercule Poirot novel, of 4 so far, was published in 2014 at the request of the Agatha Christie estate and with their full approval. How this came about was the main topic of Sophie’s laughter filled presentation, and will not be explained here. You had to be there!
The audience were also teased with the opening premise of her latest thriller ‘The Couple at the Table’ and were also intrigued to hear that a musical, ‘The Mystery of Mr E’, for which Sophie wrote both script and song lyrics, is being made into a film. The fifth Poirot book, ‘Poirot’s Silent Night’, and the film are being released in the autumn.
Sophie spoke for nearly an hour, answered questions then sold and signed copies of her books whilst refreshments were served to the audience. She sold her books to lucky purchasers “at a rate to outsell Jeff Bezos!”
Sophie was awarded a huge round of applause from the audience and presented with a bouquet of flowers.

What our customers have said about us
Fantastic free resource! My husband and I read a lot so having access to not just the books in Fulbourn Library but the entire county catalogue is an absolute godsend. It means that we can read any newly published titles in hardback,as soon as they appear, without paying huge sums of money. It is a superb resource. The staff in our village library are also extremely friendly and helpful.
Thank you very much to all the volunteers. We love our village library and appreciate all you do.
Love the library - very much.
Thanks for all your hard work in creating such a wonderful space! My daughter loves the library so much.
This is the nicest place in the village!
