The Crime Writers’ Association

Alderney Literary Festival

Featuring a line-up of best-selling and award-winning authors, the festival focuses on historical writing and runs from Friday March 17th to Sunday March 19th with talks, panel discussions and fringe events.

It opens with a fascinating panel discussion featuring historian Helen Castor and prize-winning debut novelist Sean Lusk asking, ‘Can historical narratives ever be the truth?’ It’s hosted by Festival Chairman Tony Riches, a writer of military history fiction and a committee member of the Historical Writers’ Association.

Established authors also taking part include bestselling crime and historical novelist Andrew Taylor, author of The Shadows of London; Nick Jubber, winner of the Dolman Travel Book Award whose latest work, The Fairy Tellers, explores the people behind our most iconic fairy tales from medieval times to the development of the children’s book industry in the nineteenth century; and Christina Ezrahi, an award winning historian of Soviet cultural politics and Russian ballet. Her novel, Dancing for Stalin, is the true story of dancer and choreographer Nina Anisimova who disappeared in 1938 at the height of Stalin’s Great Terror yet miraculously survived the Soviet gulag.
