The Crime Writers’ Association

Alibis in the Archive 2023

Gladstone's Library, Hawarden, Flintshire CH5 3DF

Alibis in the Archive is, as everyone who has attended over the years knows, one of the most enjoyable occasions in the crime fiction lover’s calendar.

You’ll have the chance to hear leading authors talk about fascinating topics in a wonderful setting which is the home to the British Crime Writing Archives. The Archives comprise the wonderful memorabilia of both the CWA and the legendary Detection Club.

Martin Edwards, Archivist for both organisations, says: “I have had the pleasure and privilege of programming Alibis since it began – it’s hard to believe! – seven years ago.”

For everyone attending in person there’s the chance to mingle with and chat to some wonderful writers and fellow readers throughout the weekend. This year we have a wide range of talks and a fantastic line-up of speakers – including Felix Francis, former CWA Chair Len Tyler, Sherlock Holmes expert and novelist Bonnie MacBird and film director and author Tim Sullivan – all of whom are keen to sample the uniquely welcoming atmosphere of Gladstone’s Library. You can attend either in person or online.
