He captured the world’s imagination with his edge-of-the-seat thrillers The Da Vinci Code, Angels And Demons and Inferno, and now, Mumbai will get to meet the author of these bestselling books, Dan Brown.
Dan is set to visit Mumbai and meet his fans in November 2014, at a lecture event organised by Crossword Bookstores. This will be Dan’s maiden visit to India, and he will be present for the Penguin Annual Lecture series. One of the most prestigious cultural events of the year, the Penguin Annual Lecture series features some of the world’s most respected leaders, thinkers and writers.
