British Library crime course

The British Library is hosting a crime course in June and July, with writer and broadcaster Barry Forshaw.

Death in Foreign Climes: European Crime Fiction

Tuesdays 28 June, 5 July and 12 July 2016


What better place than the British Library to explore the most popular of literary forms – crime fiction? As our UK love affair with detective drama continues unabated, there is no question that the most avidly followed sub-genre is crime fiction from Europe – both on the printed page and screen. Indulge your obsession with the UK’s leading expert in this field, writer and broadcaster Barry Forshaw, who’ll lead a vivid tour of the genre in this three-week evening course. You’ll experience accessible and information-packed guides to crime fiction from various European regions, drawing together literature, film and television to provide the perfect ‘travel guide’ to the genre.

It’s our first course exploring crime writing, and part of a new adult learning programme here at the Library.

The British Library, St Pancras, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB.
