Swan’s Fine Books is pleased to offer special evening events on about a monthly basis. Please contact us for details on the next scheduled event!
Agatha Christie (1890 – 1976) wrote 66 detective novels, 14 short story collections, radio plays and stage dramas (including the world’s longest-running play – The Mousetrap), 7 books under pseudonym, and her autobiography.
Her books have sold more than a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 40 foreign languages; Agatha Christie’s books are outsold only by The Bible and Shakespeare.
Her literary awards include Dame of the British Empire and an honorary degree of Doctor of Literature from Oxford University.
Plus, she’s just a darn good read.
Please plan to join us for this discussion; there is no charge to attend, but we do require an R.S.V.P. to ensure enough seating for all.
Swan’s Fine Books offers books on a wide variety of general interest subjects, from literature to Californiana, from the Visual and Performing Arts to Childhood, from Exploration to Gastronomy – and much more. Our specialties include Californiana, Illustrated Books, and Fine Press books, particularly the early Grabhorn Press books; however you will find books on many other topics on our shelves, both real and virtual!
We strive to offer books that are out of the ordinary, regardless of price point; please visit either our online storefront or our brick and mortar store, and if you don’t find what you are looking for, please ask.
