About the event
Event Postponed to end of March. Details forthcoming.
Meet Martin Walker who will share his story of what inspired him to write his first novel, Bruno Chief of Police, which has become an internationally best-selling novel series now in its 18th installment.
Based on real-life characters in a small village in the Dordogne region of France, Bruno Courrèges is not your typical chief of police. He is a peaceful, gentle chap who likes to cook for his friends, teaches sports to the local children, and yearns to find a faithful wife with whom he can raise a family in his village of St. Denis. We'll also hear about life in the Dordogne region in southwest France known for its foie gras, cèpe mushrooms, medieval villages, prehistoric caves, and breathtaking scenery.
Martin's career started as a writer then editor of the British daily newspaper The Guardian for which he served as bureau chief in Moscow and the United States. He joined United Press International (UPI) in 2000 as an international correspondent and is now its Editor-in-Chief Emeritus. He also holds various positions such as senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center in Washington D.C, senior fellow of the World Policy Institute at the New School in NYC, and contributing editor of the Los Angeles Times.
