A cherry good evening out
Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost hosts an evening of weirdness…
Back in 1990, Mark Frost was responsible for co-creating one of TV’s weirdest and most wonderful programmes. Along with David Lynch, his Twin Peaks not only redefined the episodic format of television, but earned a cult following so ardent, it’s no surprise the show’s making a comeback in 2017, over two decades after it was unceremoniously cancelled by a network that didn’t understand what it had.
Now, just ahead of the show’s longawaited third season – coming to Sky Atlantic in 2017 – Frost has written a new book, The Secret History Of Twin Peaks. He’s taking it on tour, and on the Bath leg he’ll be interviewed by SFX, at a special event with Topping & Company Booksellers in the city’s Christ Church: Mark Frost Uncovers The Secret History Of Twin Peaks.
Telling “the story millions of fans have been waiting to read for 25 long years”, Frost’s book reintroduces us to the likes of FBI Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) and the townspeople of the titular location, and it looks like the perfect primer for the show’s return next year. Expect loads of background on the book from Frost, who’ll no doubt be keeping schtum about the secrets of season three, but should have loads of insight into the cult phenomenon.
If you nab an Early Bird ticket, you’ll get £10 off your own copy of The Secret History Of Twin Peaks, or buy a Book With Voucher ticket (for £19.99) to redeem a copy of the book along with a ticket to the event. Maybe it’s time to start stockpiling cherry pie and steaming cups of Joe to get you in the right frame of mind...
