We’re gearing up for the release of the new Agatha Christie Hercule Poirot mystery, The Monogram Murders, by the international bestselling author Sophie Hannah (coming this September) and decided we should re-read some classic Hercule Poirot mysteries while we wait and to get ready. We’re inviting everyone to join in the Agatha Christie Read-along and read one, two, or if you want to try, all of her books!
I’ll be posting questions for each book according to the schedule below and encourage new and old fans to join in the conversation. We’ll have contests and prizes along the way, so be sure to sign up. Sophie Hannah will join us in October on Book Club Girl on Air to discuss writing her own Hercule Poirot mystery, The Monogram Murders.
The Agatha Christie read-along begins with a discussion of And Then There Were None, tied to the 75th anniversary of the world's best-selling mystery with more than 100 million copies sold!
The read-along will officially kick off June 30th and run through the publication of The Monogram Murders this Fall (9/9).
Here’s a schedule of when I’ll post questions to discuss for each of the books:
June 30th- And Then There Were None
July 30th: Dead Man’s Folly, and we can discuss the book and the premiere of the movie adaptation on Masterpiece Mystery airing July 27th.
September 2nd: After the Funeral (be sure to pick up the new edition on sale August 5th with a foreword by Sophie Hannah explaining why this is her favorite Agatha Christie mystery)
October 6th: The Monogram Murders, featuring a guest post by author Sophie Hannah
Later in October we’ll announce Sophie’s live Book Club Girl on Air chat!
The first 10 people who sign up for the read-along will get all three Agatha Christie paperbacks!
