Sherlockian author Graham Moore

Thursday, April 19, 2012 7:00 p.m. – The One Book, One City celebration for 2012 will culminate with a special appearance by GRAHAM MOORE, author of The Sherlockian, his debut novel and a New York Times bestseller sold in 16 countries and translated into 13 languages. A mystery about the life of Arthur Conan Doyle and the modern Sherlock Holmes obsessives who devote their lives to the secrets in his books, it was called “sublime,” “clever” and “delightful” by the New York Times, and “savvy” and “entertaining” by the LA Times. Graham Moore is a novelist and screenwriter. He first learned to love mysteries as an eight year-old when he and his mother would pass a copy of Agatha Christie’s A Murder in Three Acts back and forth, reading to each other. From there, his love of mysteries grew even stronger, culminating in his own contribution to the world of Sherlockiana. Moore has served as a staff writer for a season on the ABC Family sitcom 10 Things I Hate About You, and recently sold a script about the life of legendary scientist Alan Turing to Warner Brothers. He was born in Chicago, received a B.A. in Religious History from Columbia University, and currently lives in Los Angeles. During the past two months patrons have read the book, seen the movies and learned some very entertaining and informative facts about the world of Sherlock Holmes at Crowell Public Library. Now everyone can meet the inspiration behind these programs.
