In 2015, Paula Hawkins’ debut novel The Girl on The Train received worldwide critical acclaim and went on to be adapted into a multi-million-dollar Hollywood movie, catapulting the south London journalist from struggling writer to literary celebrity. (Oh, if only…)

At this event, in the rather lovely former bank and “secret space” Oh Me Oh My, the author will be discussing her incredible journey so far with self-confessed “bookaholic” Simon Savage, and introducing and reading from her new novel Into The Water.

Another psychological thriller, this is a gripping, twisting, layered story set in a small riverside town, with Hawkins once again demonstrating her powerful understanding of human instincts and the damage they can inflict. She says: “This story has been brewing for a good while. For me there is something irresistible about the stories we tell ourselves, the way voices and truths can be hidden consciously or unconsciously, memories can be washed away and whole histories submerged.”

There will also be a support reading from debut novelist Sarah Schmidt, with extracts from See What I Have Done, a re-imagining of an unsolved American true crime case of murders, described by Hawkins as “eerie and compelling”.
