Louise Penny: looking for Gamache ... and Three Pines

Louise and Elizabeth with flowers.JPGNew York Times best-selling mystery writer Louise Penny talks with Elizabeth Robertson about her latest exciting project: turning the Chief Inspector Gamache series into a CBC TV movie.

We'll also hear about the Three Pines tour . People want to find the fictional town, but where is it??

The fictional village of Three Pines with its cast of complex characters is a big part of Louise Penny's success.
But it's Chief Inspector Gamache - wise and flawed - who's the constant.
As a US publication put it, "If you don't give your heart to Gamache, you may have no heart to give." So the search for Gamache is key to the new movie. As for Three Pines, Louise talks about where they'll film it. 

Louise is also just about to launch her eighth book in the series. We'll tell you more about that next week, as we approach the launch date in Knowlton.
