WHOWUNNIT? ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE CWA’S CRIME WRITING POLL AND CWA ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
Tuesday 5th November 2013, 6.30-7.30pm
The Gallery at Foyles, Charing Cross Road, London
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 of reinventing itself. On the night of our 60th birthday we reveal the hotly anticipated results of our poll to find the greatest crime writer, crime series and crime novel. A panel of experts discuss the poll’s findings and reflect on the past, present and future of the genre.
This event is free to CWA members, non-members £5.00/£3.00 concessions. Tickets here.
