The internationally best-selling thriller writer Lee Child has kicked off the Literary Festival at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. He's the creator of the hero extraordinaire Jack Reacher who's in all 17 of his cult books. He has sold 60 million of them!
The actor Tom Cruise read every single one of them and bought the film rights so he could play the character in his latest movie. Just a warning that Natalie Gray's report contains flash photography from the start.
Jack Reacher author Lee Child will launch the University of East Anglia's Spring Literary Festival next year.
The event will mark the UEA's 50th anniversary. Other authors taking part include Posy Simmonds, Tracey Thorn and Ruth Padel.
