The Crime Writers’ Association

Our Fascination with Crime Fiction

Bramley Library, Leeds, LS13 3ND

The annual Daggers awarded by The Crime Writers’ Association set the bar for the genre’s writing, but how did crime fiction develop into such a broad and rich reading experience?
Taking us from the Golden Age of detective fiction in the UK to the hardboiled urban streets of the US, the twisty psychological thrillers we can’t put down and the compelling police procedurals with cops we love, multi award-winning author and crime fiction expert Martin Edwards will be in conversation with Caroline Maston to discuss the genre’s evolution.

Martin will also review the recently revealed 2023 Daggers short-list.

Bramley Library, Leeds, LS13 3NB on 17 May 2023 at 7pm.
