The book world was abuzz when it was announced that master spy writer John le Carré had left a last unpublished complete novel, Silverview, to be released after his death. In an exclusive Festival event in what would have been le Carré’s 90th birthday week, we bring together his long-time literary agent and friend Jonny Geller, leading spy writer (and often referred to as the heir of le Carré) Mick Herron and next generation spy writer Charlotte Philby to celebrate Silverview’s publication and reflect on a remarkable life in letters. Chaired by Clare Clark.
