National Crime Fiction Week and Crimefest
James Ellroy used to claim his novels were books for the whole family – if the name of your family is the Charles Manson family! Well there should be enough events to please any crime-fiction-loving family in the forthcoming National Crime Fiction Week. The Crime Writers Association has announced a nationwide celebration of crime fiction beginning on Monday, 14th June. The activities include readings, discussions and workshops at venues throughout the United Kingdom. The CWA has put up a map so you can see the events held closest to you. And as if that wasn’t enough, there is also the forthcoming annual Crimefest convention, which this year is being held in Bristol, 20-23 May.
