The Book Drunkard Literary Festival

Attendees joined beloved Canadian astronaut, and bestselling author Chris Hadfield for a thrilling evening of suspense! Chris Hadfield discussed his new novel The Apollo Murders, an exceptional Cold War thriller from the dark heart of the Space Race, in a virtual event that is sure to be spectacular. Presented in partnership with Penguin Random House, this was one event attendees didn’t want to miss!

The moderator was Teddy Wilson, formerly of “InnerSpace” on SpaceTV. His interview list reads like a who’s who of the entertainment industry! He’s interviewed George Lucas at Skywalker Ranch, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Jake Gyllenhaal, Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Christian Bale, Kate Beckinsale, Nicolas Cage, Bryan Cranston, Mark Ruffalo, Martin Sheen, Anderson Cooper, John Malkovich, Nathan Fillion, William Shatner, and Leonard Nimoy; Directors David Cronenberg, Robert Zemeckis, Zack Snyder, Guillermo del Toro; authors George R.R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, Anne Rice; Marvel’s Stan Lee; the casts of The Twilight Saga, The Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and many others.

Full of the fascinating technical detail that fans of The Martian loved, and reminiscent of the thrilling claustrophobia, twists and tension of The Hunt for Red October, The Apollo Murders puts you right there in the moment. Experience the fierce G-forces of launch, the frozen loneliness of Space and the fear of holding on to the outside of a spacecraft orbiting the Earth at 17,000 miles per hour, as told by a former Commander of the International Space Station who has done all of those things in real life.

Attendees were bid to strap in and count down for the ride of a lifetime.
