Jack Reacher author to visit Penrith

Sunday, 11 November 2018

Lee Child, author of the bestselling Jack Reacher series, will visit Penrith's Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on 19 November.

As his only Sydney stop in a worldwide book tour, Child's talk is an exceptional opportunity for local bibliophiles to see the man in person.

Presented by Penrith City Library, Lee will be discussing his career as one of the world's most renowned crime writers and his heart-stopping new book PAST TENSE, the 23rd novel in the series.

Child's books have been published in 47 languages in over 100 countries, with more than 100 million books sold - approximately one every nine seconds. His work was launched into the pop-culture stratosphere when his ninth volume, One Shot, became a Hollywood blockbuster starring Tom Cruise. The film, aptly named Jack Reacher, was followed in 2016 with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Naturally, Child's prolific writing has seen him take home a swathe of literary awards.

Bookings are essential and tickets are $15. Find out more and book at thejoan.com.au/whats-on. Can't make it? Pick up a copy of PAST TENSE at Penrith Library, Dymocks Booksellers or through Penguin Random House Australia. You'll be in for a wild ride.
