St Hilda's College Crime Fiction Weekend 2020 more information.

Dear friends, it is not too early too book for the
2020 St Hilda's College Crime Fiction Weekend
14/15/16 August
This year our theme is ‘All Our Yesterdays’: historical crime fiction’.
Find yourself unleashed upon the London of the Swinging Sixties, caught amid clashes of classes and cultures as the Empire’s sun sets on Calcutta, pursuing India’s first female detective down the winding backstreets of 1950s Bombay, browsing the gin shops and brothels of Georgian London, or goggling at the puppet masters, dancing girls and fortune tellers as Brighton hangs out the bunting for the Coronation of Elizabeth II – and all in pursuit of Murder.
After all, they say time heals everything…
Featured particpants and speakers include:
Val McDermid, Mick Herron, William Shaw, Sarah Hilary, Abir Mukherjee, Vaseem Khan,
Laura Shepherd-Robinson, Elly Griffiths, and Tom Wood.
Alison Joseph and Jake Kerridge will be sharing the chairing. Critic and biographer Andrew Wilson is the Friday night after dinner speaker, and Hilda's hero Andrew Taylor is already devising the Saturday night Whodunnit featuring a glittering cast of authors (prize provided by Blackwell's Bookshop).
