We are delighted to welcome Lemony Snicket, the bestselling author of A Series of Unfortunate Events to Waterstones Piccadilly


Lemony will be talking to literary journalist Suzi Feay about his latest book Poison for Breakfast, a cautionary tale about his own demise, as well as taking questions from the audience.

Tickets £15 includes entry and a copy of Poison for Breakfast, or £6 General Admission / £5 Waterstones Plus Cardholder.


Has Lemony Snicket been poisoned?


This book is about bewilderment, a word which here means “the feeling of being bewildered”, and “bewildered” is a word which here means “you don’t have any idea what is happening”, and “you” is a word which doesn’t just mean you. It means everyone. 


This true story – as true as Lemony Snicket himself – beings with a puzzling note under his door: You had poison for breakfast. Following a winding trail of clues to solve the mystery of his own demise, Lemony Snicket takes us on a thought-provoking tour of his predilections – from the proper way to boil an egg to the sublime pleasure of swimming in open water


Lemony Snicket is the internationally bestselling author of the thirteen volumes in A Series of Unfortunate Events; several picture books, including The Dark and The Bad Mood and the Stick; and the books collectively titles All the Wrong Questions. His work has sold almost 80 million copies worldwide.
