Event description
John Connolly 'he' - The Laurel & Hardy Relationship

About this event

In a change from his usual genre of crime writing, John Connelly will present some Laurel and Hardy film clips, and talk about the men and their history. It will tie in with his novel ‘he’ and offers audiences something different from other literary events. The extraordinary life of one of the greatest screen comedians, Stan Laurel, and the tension between commercial demands and artistic integrity the human frailties behind even the greatest artists and one of the most enduring and beloved partnerships: Laurel and Hardy.

John Connolly’s detective, Charlie Parker, has appeared in nineteen novels, with the twentieth, The Furies, to be published in August 2022. With his partner, Jennifer Ridyard, Connolly wrote the Chronicles of the Invaders, a three-volume science fiction/fantasy series for teen readers. He has also written three stand-alone novels, the Samuel Johnson trilogy for middle-grade readers and a monograph about the film Horror Express. He is the only Irish novelist to have won the US-based Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, and Shamus Awards. Connolly divides his time between his native Dublin and Portland, Maine.
