The popular Pointless host burst on to the book scene last autumn with The Thursday Murder Club, a warm and witty novel of septuagenarian friends solving crimes from their nursing home. It became the fastest selling adult crime debut since records began, beating Barack Obama, David Walliams and JK Rowling to reach Christmas No.1, and has sold well over one million copies. 12 months on – and with Steven Spielberg now holding the film rights – Richard Osman returns to Cheltenham to reflect on the book’s remarkable success and introduce the next instalment, The Man Who Died Twice, in conversation with journalist and presenter Alex Clark.

This event will be available to watch on the #CheltLitFest Player from 27 October 2021.
