Event Description

Gladstone’s Library will host Alibis in the Archive online in October. The festival promises to serve up crime-writing clues and confessions, and tips on cracking (fictional) cases.

Weekend access tickets are a steal at £15.
This line-up of illustrious crime writers from the UK and North America includes Lynne Truss, best known for her bestselling book on punctuation, Eats, Shoots & Leaves. The fourth of her Constable Twitten series, Psycho by the Sea, was published in June by Raven Books.
Like Lynne, playwright, composer and writer Rupert Holmes lives a literary double life. He is not only a highly successful singer-songwriter whose hit singles include ‘Escape (The Pina Colada Song’) and ‘Him’ but also a multi-award winning crime writer who created the hit US TV mystery series Remember WENN, the musicals Drood and Curtains, and saw his crime novel Where The Truth Lies filmed with Colin Firth and Kevin Bacon in the lead roles.
With Martin Edwards, Shawn Reilly-Simmons, David Brawn, Michael Jecks and many other fascinating speakers on the bill, it would be criminal to miss it.
The full line up is:
Eats, Shoots, and Leaves… the Crime Scene with Lynne Truss
Howdunit with Martin Edwards with David Brawn
Murder on Stage with Rupert Holmes and Joseph Goodrich
There’s no police like Holmes, featuring Bonnie MacBird in conversation with David Brawn
The timeless appeal of crime fiction, a conversation featuring Antonia Hodgson, Len Tyler, Michael Jecks and Ruth Dudley Edwards
Traditional detective fiction today – the view from America. A panel featuring Verena Rose, Shawn Reilly-Simmons, Tonya Spratt-Williams and Art Taylor
