We’re excited to welcome author Lee Child to NCC 2016!
Lee Child a British thriller author best known for the Jack Reacher series of novels. Writing his first book, The Killing Floor, at the age of forty after a career as a program director for popular British television shows such as Brideshead Revisited, The Jewel in the Crown, and Prime Suspect, his work was an instant success, topping bestseller charts worldwide and to date spawning more than twenty novels telling the ongoing story of West Point graduate and action hero Jack Reacher.
In 2012, Paramount Pictures brought Child’s iconic character to life on the big screen in Jack Reacher, starring Tom Cruise and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl). In October of 2016 Cruise reprised the role in the highly anticipated sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, which also stars Cobie Smulders (The Avengers) and Aldis Hodge (Leverage).
This year mark’s Child’s first appearance at NCC as he celebrates the release of the newest novel in the Jack Reacher series, Night School. He will be appearing at a special ticketed event hosted by Random House publishing and Entertainment Weekly on Friday, November 11 at the Carolina Theatre as well as signing books for fans at the Durham Hotel (located one block east of the convention center) on Saturday afternoon.
