Author Charles Belfoure To Speak At Fairfield University Bookstore

Fairfield University Bookstore
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Charles Belfoure is the New York Times bestselling author of House of Thieves (2016 paperback release) and The Paris Architect (2014 paperback release). Belfoure will be speaking at the downtown Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield, CT 06824 (203) 255-7756 on Thursday, January 25, 2018 beginning at 7pm on the 2nd floor. Copies will be available for purchase/signing. This event is free and open to the public.

House of Thieves is a fascinating look at the two poles of New York society in the late 19th century, from the extreme opulence of the Knickerbocker society to the opium dens and whorehouses of the criminal underworld. It also presents an exciting new twist on the intriguing architecture angle that drew readers to The Paris Architect

“A pulse-raising read for historical crime and historical thriller fans.Library Journal

“an entertaining excursion through Gilded Age New York with all the right architectural details.” Kirkus

The Paris Architect was chosen as a Finalist for the 2015 International Dublin Literary Award, American Booksellers Association Indie Pick – October 2013, New York Post Must Read Book – October 2013, A USA Today New Voices selection – October 2013, and Bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell’s favorite book of 2013. 

In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money - and maybe get him killed. But if he's clever enough, he'll avoid any trouble. All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won't find it. He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can't resist. 

“Heart, reluctant heroism, and art blend together in this spine-chilling page turner.” — Publishers Weekly

“ Disturbing and captivating . . . [this] beautiful tale demonstrates that while human beings are capable of great atrocities, they have a capacity for tremendous acts of courage as well.”  — Library Journal. 

Charles Belfoure is an architect by profession, with a specialty in historical preservation. He graduated from the Pratt Institute and Columbia University. Learn more at www.charlesbelfoure.com
