The Crime Writers’ Association

First Monday

London’s premier crime fiction evening event, First Monday, returns to City University in Northampton Square (Angel Tube) on 2 October, beginning at 6.30pm. It’s a stellar line-up, as usual, with 2017’s CWA Diamond Dagger recipient Ann Cleeves, Mark Edwards, Caz Frear and Iceland’s own Lilja Sigurðardóttir – all being chivvied along by Rod Reynolds in the chair. That’s five brilliant crime authors for the price of – well – nothing now that City University’s Crime Thriller MA are sponsoring the evening. As always, it’s a very social night with readers, writers, publishers and booksellers all heading off to The Peasant pub afterwards. For more details and to reserve your space – visit
