In 2015, Paula Hawkins’ debut novel The Girl on The Train received worldwide critical acclaim
, catapulting the South London journalist from struggling writer to literary celebrity. Within two years Hawkins went from writing on the verge of panic
, close to throwing it all in, to successful author of a multi-million dollar Hollywood adaptation.
Join Hawkins for an exclusive afternoon at The Lowry for her only UK theatre appearance as she discusses her incredible journey so far and introduces her follow-up psychological thriller, Into The Water, a gripping, twisting, layered story set in a small riverside town. Sharing the suspense that pervades both her life and her writing, from the days spent penning the make-or-break novel to the inexorable and unyielding success that followed, to her latest work as she once again demonstrates her powerful understanding of human instincts and the damage they can inflict.
Paula Hawkins says: “This story has been brewing for a good while. For me there is something irresistible about the stories we tell ourselves, the way voices and truths can be hidden consciously or unconsciously, memories can be washed away and whole histories submerged. Then two sisters appeared, and the novel began to form.”
Don’t miss the chance to hear from the author herself and be one of the first to get your hands on Hawkins’ riveting new publication, set to captivate another wave of fervent readers worldwide.
