What: Edinburgh “Double or Nothing” book launch

Where: 1.06 Project Room, 50 George Square, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland

When: 8 September 2022, at 18.30-20.00 BST

The organisator says:

“We are delighted to host the Edinburgh book launch of “Double or Nothing“, written by Kim Sherwood. James Bond has been captured, and his whereabouts are unknown. “Double or Nothing” introduces a new generation of spies, and the book is the start of a brand new trilogy following MI6’s agents with a licence to kill.

Join us on Thursday 8 September 2022 at 6.30pm for an evening with Kim Sherwood in conversation with Professor Penny Fielding (English Literature, University of Edinburgh) and Dr David Sorfa (Film Studies, University of Edinburgh). The event will launch the Edinburgh Network for Studies in Secrecy (ENSiS), a community open to anyone interested in secrecy and spying in literature, history and film.

The interview with Kim will last around 45 minutes, followed by a reception and a book signing.”

Kim Sherwood is a Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh. She won the Bath Novel Award for her debut novel Testament, published in 2018. It was longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Award, shortlisted for the Author’s Club Best First Novel, and won the Harpers’ Bazaar Big Book Award. She was shortlisted for The Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year in 2019.

Sherwood has a Bond connection: she is the granddaughter of the actor George Baker who made a number of appearances in the James Bond films – most famously playing Sir Hilary Bray in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” (1969). Kim is a lifelong fan of Ian Fleming and James Bond. “Double or Nothing” (released 1 September 2022) is the first in Kim’s trilogy of Double O novels expanding the James Bond universe.
