Cool Idea of the Day: Night School with Lee Child

Shelf Awareness

To honor Lee Child and his many ardent fans, almost a quarter of whom are active members of the military or veterans, Random House is holding an event called Night School with Lee Child on Veterans Day, November 11, in Durham, N.C., in connection with North Carolina Comicon. Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill is the official bookseller for the event.

The main event--a conversation between Child and Entertainment Weekly's Tina Jordan, during which the author will discuss his creative process, his novels and the movie adaptations starring Tom Cruise--will take place from 7:30 to 11 p.m. at the Carolina Theatre of Durham. Admission is $30, and includes a copy of the new Jack Reacher novel, Night School, which will be published November 7 by Delacorte Press.

For $60, guests receive a signed copy of Night School and, after the Carolina Theatre discussion, can attend an after-party at nearby Bull McCabe's, where they can meet Child and have photographs taken with him, as well as enjoy an open bar and free food, take part in interactive activities and win fall book giveaways.

In honor of Veterans Day, Random House has partnered with USO of NC. For every ticket sold to Night School with Lee Child, Random House will donate a Lee Child book to a service member overseas. Random House is also offering a pre-event meet-and-greet with Child for local Ft. Bragg service members who purchase tickets to the event.
