Those of you that regularly attend St Hilda’s Crime and Mystery Conference that takes place every year at St Hilda’s College in Oxford will know Eileen Roberts. She has passed on the following information regarding the forthcoming Oxford Literary Festival.
Two of our Mystery & Crime Weekend stars, Simon Brett and Sophie Hannah, will be contributors at the Oxford Literary Festival this year. The details are below and I do hope to see you there - I will be chairing their session. This will be the second in the series, following PD James defending Agatha & Jill Paton Walsh, Dorothy L., which was a sell-out last year!
