St Hilda's Crime Fiction Weekend goes live online, 14/15 August.

This year will be the 27th Crime Fiction Weekend at St Hilda's, but for many of you, at home and abroad, 2020 may be the first opportunity you have to attend.
Running from Friday evening through to Saturday evening our theme is
All Our Yesterdays’: historical crime fiction.

Join us live to find yourself unleashed upon the London of the Swinging Sixties, the winding backstreets of 1950s Bombay, the gin shops and brothels of Georgian London, and backstage on Brighton pier - all in pursuit of Murder. Subjects include Agatha Christie, Patricia Highsmith, Ian Pears, and CJ Sansom.
Andrew Taylor (Ashes Of London, The American Boy, etc) is our Guest Of Honour
and author of the dramatic Whodunnit:
The Murder Of Lucy Ackroyd
'a chillingly implausible tale set in
 the academic badlands beyond Magdalen Bridge.'
Starring: Chief Inspector Taylor, Val McDermid, Sarah Hilary,
Abir Mukherjee, Miriam Margolyes, and Mick Herron.
Blackwell's Bookshop will be awarding a prize to one lucky armchair sleuth.
Please, head over to the website to peruse the programme, the speakers and
their subjects, both the fresh blood and the usual suspects!

There is a special concession for alumnae and recordings of the whole event will be available to attendees for a month.

We look forward to seeing you.
