Creative inspiration

Sophie Hannah, bestselling author and creator of the latest Poirot novel, 'The Monogram Murders,' describes why Greenway is special for her.

'Greenway is an enchanted place - a piece of perfection in a world that is far from perfect. I come here regularly for inspiration, and to recharge my creative batteries in idyllic surroundings. Agatha Christie's decision to make this stunning house her holiday home proves - as if her novels were not already sufficient proof - that she had the most brilliant of minds.'

Book signing

Thursday 10 September, 3-4pm, Greenway shop

Tom Adams and Dr John Curran will be in the shop signing copies of their joint venture 'Tom Adams Uncovered: The Art of Agatha Christie and Beyond' and David Brawn will be signing his book 'Little Grey Cells.'
