In Conversation with Gerald Seymour

Pinder Hall, 26th November 2021

Described by the Daily Telegraph as the “finest thriller writer in the world", and by the Times as “a master of his craft", Gerald Seymour is the best-selling author of 37 novels, including his iconic debut novel “ Harry’s Game” which, along with five of his other novels, was subsequently filmed for television in the UK and US.

 

A master story-teller, his characters populate the murky worlds of organised crime, terrorism, international conflict and the intelligence communities. That he is so adept in his portrayal of these environments owes much to his 15 years as an ITN reporter, covering events from the Red Army and the Red Brigades of Germany and Italy, to Vietnam and South Asia, and from the Middle East to Northern Ireland. From the streets of Londonderry on Bloody Sunday, he later found himself in close proximity to the tragic events which unfolded at the Munich Olympic Games and he subsequently featured in the Oscar-winning film “One Day in September” which related those events.

Join Gerald for a fascinating evening at Pinder Hall from 7.30pm on Friday 26th November and hear all about his life.
