In conversation with Ben Aaronovitch at Kensington Central Library
Join us at the library to hear author, Ben Aaronovitch speak about his work.
Our guest author, Ben Aaronovitch, reached an important milestone last year when his fantastically popular Rivers of London series turned ten years old. Due to the pandemic, we were unable to celebrate properly - so here is a chance for all his fans to catch up with what he has been up to.
Born and raised in London, Ben claims to have had 'the sort of unrelentingly uninteresting childhood that drives a person to drink or science fiction'. The latter proved useful in his early career when he wrote for Doctor Who (before it was fashionable), Casualty, and the cheapest soap opera ever made - Jupiter Moon.
It was while running the Crime and Science Fiction sections at the Covent Garden branch of Waterstones that Ben conceived the notion of writing novels instead. Thus was the Rivers of London series born and when the first book proved to be a runaway success, he waited all of five minutes to give up the day job and return to the bliss that is a full time writing career.
Come along , this is a brilliant opportunity to probe into the mind of a great author. You'll be able to ask questions, so get yours ready. There will be a book-signing session afterwards - we'll have some copies for sale but feel free to bring your own copies of books and comics for Ben to sign.
