Friday Lunch & Lecture – Agatha Christie – Queen of Crime
Dame Agatha Christie has been dead for more than forty years but remains a household name and is still the bestselling author of all time. Fellow crime writer Diane Janes shares the fascinating and sometimes surprising story of how a woman with little or no formal education rose from obscurity and eventually outsold everyone except Shakespeare and the Bible.
Includes lunch. Lunch is served from 1pm and lecture begins at 2pm.
