CANCELLED Judith Flanders - The Invention of Murder

Thursday 24th November 2011 6:15pm - 7:30pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

Historian Judith Flanders has turned her eye to the Victorian fascination with murder, and looks at everything from the myths of Jack the Ripper to the novels, ballads, and puppet shows recreating some of the 19th century's most sensational crimes. The result is both cultural history and gripping narrative, and guaranteed to thrill.

Venue: Upstairs at Foyles, Bristol
