A Glut of Golden Age Events

I’m delighted to tell you about two exciting virtual events I’m a part of this July.

The Golden Age of Crime and Agatha Christie is a thrill-packed two-day conference, which Sarah Martin, Stefano Serafini, Mia Dormer, and I will host via Zoom on 17th and 18th July 2021.

The impressive list of speakers may look familiar: this event serves to combine two planned conferences which were, like so much else, foiled by the pandemic. The Golden Age of Crime was due to go ahead in April 2020 and The Mysterious Mrs Christie was to take place last September.

We are thrilled to be joined by two keynotes, Dr Victoria Stewart and Detection Club President Martin Edwards. I interviewed Martin for his keynote, which is pre-recorded, and it was a great deal of fun.

Detection Club fans will recognise the skull in Martin Edwards’ background!

Find out more at www.goldenageofcrime.com! Registration filled up within two days of opening, but you can contact us via that website to go on a waitlist, and keep an eye out for recordings of some talks, which will be available later.

If you’re interested in crime fiction, you’ve probably heard of Malice Domestic. Well, this year, the august American crime festival, where the Agathas are awarded, is going online. I am delighted to be on a panel, Seeking Agatha, with bestselling novelists Catriona McPherson, Sophie Hannah, and Lori Radar-Day. It’s chaired by Daniel Stashower, and the one-hour roundtable which discusses the legacy of Agatha Christie will be broadcast on 15th July.

Don’t mind me, hanging out with the luminaries

Malice Domestic’s More Than Malice is open from 14th to 17th July 2021, and you can sign up via www.malicedomestic.org.

The gorgeous artwork for The Golden Age of Crime and Agatha Christie was designed by Rich Obrien at Devilish Creative.
