Noir Is the Colour: Marc Dugain and Peter Guttridge

The 26th of June will mark the ending of the new 'Noir Is the Colour' series at the French Institute.  Whether you've missed the 3 previous events or if you were lucky enough to come and have been craving more, this is your chance to celebrate with us the renaissance of noir fiction!

The first three events had us uncovering the codes and challenges of noir-writing with Prix Goncourt winner Pierre Lemaitre and King of Crime John Harvey as well as re-discovering the adaptation of Simenon's stories in film through Leconte's Monsieur Hire.  After questioning the origins of writing crime fiction with UK's leading figures of the genre Nicci French and award winning author Bernard Minier, brace yourself for some unseasonable chills for the talk between Marc Dugain and Peter Guttridge.  With The Avenue of the Giants you will delve into the mind of a full-fledged serial killer in America's turbulent 60's and 70's while the gripping 'Brighton series' will have you exploring Brighton's murderous past and its murderous present.  To all readers and thrill seekers: this promises to be an evening to remember!  Information to the event can be found here.
