Noirwich Presents

Celebrate September as Norwich’s ‘month of crime’ and the impending launch of Noirwich Crime Writing Festival with this exclusive event with James Ellroy. We are thrilled to welcome him to Norwich for the first time to discuss his latest book, and his fascination with the criminal underbelly of mid-20 century Los Angeles.


Legendary crime writer James Ellroy returns with the second book in his Second L.A. Quartet. This Storm is a brilliant, pulse-pounding, as-it-happens historical crime novel set in WWII Los Angeles. Ellroy fans will not be disappointed. Facebook EventBrite
