WhoWunnit? Announcement of the CWA’s Crime Writing Poll with the Crime Writers’ Association

Tuesday 5th November 2013 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event

On a dark and stormy Guy Fawkes night, three-score years ago, a group of shadowy figures met in a candle-lit room, to sign in blood the document that would bind them together in a mysterious organisation known as... the Crime Writers' Association.
Ok, Ok, so they probably had a pen, but what is true is that in 2013 the CWA are celebrating 60 years of supporting and promoting the work of crime writers, one of the most popular of literary genres, with a staggering capacity for reinventing itself. On the night of their 60th birthday they reveal the hotly anticipated results of their poll to find the greatest crime writer and crime novel.

A panel of experts, including Barry Forshaw (Nordic Noir), Zoë Sharp (Die Easy), Belinda Bauer (Rubbernecker) and David Stuart Davies (Brothers in Blood), discuss the poll's findings and reflect on the past, present and future of the genre.

Tickets: Free to CWA members; non-members £5.00/£3.00 concessions. Simply add the required number to the basket below. Please note, in consideration of the trees no physical tickets will be issued, the email confirmation you receive will be proof of your booking.
Venue: The Gallery at Foyles Charing Cross Road
