Upcoming Event
Friday, August 13, 2021 - 1:00pm


This event will stream online as a part of our P&P Live! Series

In The Coldest Case, after attending an exhibit on the facial reconstruction of ancient skulls, Bruno wonders if this technology might provide an invaluable clue to a thirty-year-old cold case. But learning the identity of the murder victim is only the beginning.

The strange case is further complicated as Parisian bureaucrats get involved, hinting that essential diplomatic relations might be at stake. And to make matters even worse, the Dordogne is suffering from an intense summer drought that is sparking fires across the region. But as always, Bruno will keep a cool head through it all--and, bien sûr, takes time to enjoy a sumptuous Périgordian meal!


Martin Walker, after a long career of working in international journalism and for think tanks, now gardens, cooks, explores vineyards, writes, travels, and has never been more busy. He divides his time between Washington, D.C., and the Dordogne.

Walker will be in conversation with Jonathan Segal, the Vice President and Executive Editor at Alfred A. Knopf, where he has worked since 1989. Prior to that he worked for Simon & Schuster, and for The New York Times. Mr. Segal has worked with a host of bestselling authors including Robert M. Gates, Elie Wiesel, Tony Blair, Bill Bradley, Carl Bernstein, Robert B. Reich, and many more. In 2015, he was presented the Editorial Excellence Award by the Biographers International Organization.
