A not to be missed Coffee and Conversations event with author and Dulwich parent, Alice Clark-Platts. Alice is a former human rights lawyer who worked at the UN International Criminal Tribunal in connection with the Rwandan genocide and on cases involving Winnie Mandela and Snoop Dogg. She is the author of the police procedurals Bitter Fruits and The Taken, the latter of which was shortlisted for the Best Police Procedural in the Dead Good Reader Awards 2017. Her work was included in Deadlier: 100 of the Best Crime Stories Written by Women, selected by Sophie Hannah.
Her latest book The Flower Girls has taken the literary world by storm so don't miss this opportunity to hear Alice talk about this new book and her writing career to date. This is also a great opportunity to buy one a copy of The Flower Girls at the discounted price of $22 and have it signed by Alice - a great read for the upcoming Easter Break!
Prior to becoming an author, DCSG parent Alice Clark-Platts was a former human rights lawyer who worked on cases involving Winnie Mandela and rapper Snoop Dogg as well as working at the UN International Tribunal in connection with the Rwandan genocide.
Bloomsbury imprint Raven Books fought off competition in a five-publisher auction to buy Alice's thriller The Flower Girls as part of a six-figure two-book deal.
Previously published by Penguin, Alice is the author of the police procedurals Bitter Fruit and The Taken, the latter of which was shortlisted for the Best Police Procedural in the Dead Good Reader Awards in 2017.
Alice has also written short stories which have been published in various anthologies. And when Alice is not writing, she's running The Singapore Writers' Group which she founded in 2012.
We are really looking forward to hosting Alice at our next Coffee and Conversations With An Author event at 8:45 am on Thursday 4 April in the Senior School Library Oval Room.
