David Madden Reading & Booksigning

10 Nov 2012

Saturday, November 10 at 7PM at Malaprop's Bookstore & Café, join us as David Madden reads from and signs the most ambitious and imaginative work of his distinguished career. In David Madden's stunningly original novel London Bridge in Plague and Fire, Old London Bridge is as much a living, breathing character as its architect, the priest Peter de Colechurch, who began work on it in 1176, partly to honor Archbishop Thomas à Becket, murdered in Canterbury Cathedral. Madden is the author of ten novels - including most recently Abducted by Circumstance and Sharpshooter. Ron Rash has called London Bridge in Plague and Fire "a brilliant cleaving of historical fact and Blakeian imagination. David Madden has written his masterpiece."
