St Hilda's Crime Fiction Weekend 2020

I'm very excited to be helping to organise next year's St Hilda's Crime Writing Weekend, which is held in glorious Oxford over the weekend 14-16 August 2020. The theme is 'All Our Yesterdays: Historical Crime Fiction'. Guest speakers will include Laura Shepherd-Robinson, Abir Mukherjee, Vaseem Khan and William Shaw. Do come if you can; it's a weekend like no other and unmissable for crime fiction fans. You'll have drinks on the lawn, a murder mystery supper (we hope to persuade Mick Herron to reprise his Geordie detective) and a super Sunday lunch. You can stay on campus for the full Oxford collegiate experience!
