Thornden had a very interesting author visit today. Andrew Lane is the author of some 20 prevous books and has recently started writing a series of books about the Young Sherlock Holmes. His talk focused on Sherlock Holmes and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He explained that he wanted to write about the Young Sherlock Holmes because the adult Sherlock, a very complex character, was well known but no one knew about him in his younger years. Following the talk there was a lively question and answer session. The morning ended with the opportunity to purchase his books and have them signed.
There is a selection of Andrews books to borrow in the library.
