SAS hero set to storm Wigston Library

Elite soldier turned bestselling novelist Chris Ryan will be giving a talk and signing copies of his books at Wigston Library in September.

The former SAS Sniper Team Commander and author of several thrilling page-turners will be meeting fans and promoting his new book, Killing For The Company, on Wednesday 7th September 2011.

Chris famously escaped from Iraq while a member of the ill-fated Bravo Two Zero patrol during the Gulf War in 1991, and wrote about his experiences in his most popular work, The One That Got Away.

His escape covered 300 kilometres and was the longest evasion by a lone soldier in British military history.

Since his ordeal, Chris has left the armed forces and has written dozens of popular fiction and non-fiction works, including the Alpha Force series for younger readers, and fitness and survival guides. He also co-created and starred in the TV show, Ultimate Force.

His one hour talk begins at 7.30pm at Wigston Library on Wednesday 7th September. Tickets cost £3 each, and should be booked early as demand for this event is expected to be extremely high. For more information call 0116 3053689 or visit Wigston Library.

Chris Ryan will be available for interview via his publishers, Hodder & Stoughton, prior to the talk. Please contact Eleni Lawrence, Senior Publicity Manager at Hodder & Stoughton, on 020 7873 6174 for more details
