With his international bestseller, The Seven Per-Cent Solution, award-winning author, screenwriter, and film director Nicholas Meyer changed the popular conception of Sherlock Holmes by providing modern fans with a previously unpublished case, as recorded by Dr. John H. Watson, that portrayed the brilliant detective tempered with flaws and addictions. Now Meyer returns with The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols, another new case from Watson’s journal—in which Holmes and Watson are investigating the origins of a 20th-century atrocity.
Be among the first to hear about the author’s first experiences reading the tales of the Great Detective, what he thinks about the enduring preoccupation with all things Sherlock, his fascination with forgery, the real-life inspirations for the novel, and how the Protocols relate during a time of prevailing “fake news."
Following the reading, Mr. Meyer will be available to sign copies of his book, which can be reserved in advance or purchased through the Folger Shop.
Reservations are requested.
