Sophie Hannah is an internationally bestselling writer of crime fiction and the author of the new Hercule Poirot novels. To celebrate the publication of her latest Poirot novel 'The Mystery of Three Quarters' Sophie will be talking about continuing Poirot's legacy, in the Walled Garden on Tuesday 21 August.
Following on from Sophie's event in the Walled Garden, she will be heading the Greenway shop to sign copies of 'The Mystery of Three Quarters.' Why not come along to meet the author and buy a copy of the book two days before its general release?

We've been searching the collection at Greenway for things that are usually hidden away, and each month are bringing them into focus. In the Winter Dining Room the month's items will form the centre of a display in a 'cabinet of curiosities' and will feature here on the website along with a writing prompt.
An exhibition of Agatha Christie's 'secret' letters to her longstanding publisher HarperCollins is on display in the Walled Garden of her Devon holiday home. The exhibition shows a working relationship and friendship which lasted for 50 years.
In the final episode of our new literary podcast series, we explore the Devonshire holiday home of the prolific crime writer Agatha Christie. Not only was Greenway Christie’s place of rest and relaxation, it was the setting of three of her fictional murders.
A second-hand book shop is now open on the ground floor of the café, with all of the money raised through second-hand book sales going to the conservation of Greenway. Can you help to look after Greenway for ever by donating a book or two?
