August 20, 2011
will be speaking at the Big City Read
hosted by the City of York Libraries this Sunday. Held annually, York’s Big City Read encourages people to read the same book and share in events celebrating the novel. The focus of this year’s Big City Read is Andrew Martin’s The Lost Luggage Porter, a detective drama set in Yorkshire’s criminal underworld. The 2011 programme celebrates the city’s railway heritage and Edwardian history, exploring crime writing past and present. A range of events has been organised including reading groups, local history workshops and walking tours.
CSI Sunday with Margaret Murphy will take place on Sunday 21 August at 15:00. Margaret has published nine internationally acclaimed psychological thrillers and has previously been shortlisted for the Crime Writers' Association (CWA) Dagger. Recently she has worked with the Macaulay Institute on the first of the highly successful Murders, Mysteries and Microscopes Lectures, bringing scientists and crime novelists together to talk about forensic science in fiction.
Former policeman Mike Pannett
