Worthing Library is hosting a free lunchtime talk with a gruesome slant as Doug Eaton looks at the British obsession with crime.
‘Whodunnit? 200 years of Murder’ talk will take place on Tuesday 4 April 2017 at 12.10pm where you’ll hear about Sweeney Todd, Jack the Ripper and Victorian melodramas.
From Sherlock Holmes and Dickens, to PD James and Ruth Rendell, join us, if you dare…
In his talk, Doug, who is a seasoned speaker and has given talks at Worthing Library in the past, will discuss the obsession with crime and detective novels. Learn about the rash of novels about female Private Eyes, how the First World War transformed crime fiction and the introduction of the 'thriller'.
