Thrilling line-up for read­ers

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

LO­CAL WRIT­ERS are among the line-up for this year’s Mur­der One book fes­ti­val.

Tak­ing place in Dublin’s Smock Al­ley Theatre from Novem­ber 1 to 3, the event is the brain­child of best­selling Wick­low au­thor Sam Blake, aka Kilmacanog­ue’s Vanessa Fox O’Loughlin.

Sup­ported by Dublin Li­braries and Dublin City of Lit­er­a­ture, Mur­der One boasts an in­trigu­ing blend of crime fact and fic­tion.

Martina Cole, Steve Ca­vanagh, Lucy Fo­ley, Hal­lie Ruben­hold, Joseph O’Con­nor and Liz Nu­gent are among the host of Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional writ­ers who will be in Dublin for the fes­ti­val.

True crime will be a fo­cus with events on Jack the Rip­per, while Dr Richard Shep­herd, UK State Pathol­o­gist will also be in dis­cus­sion with in­ter­na­tional best­seller Paul Car­son.

World author­ity on Agatha Christie, Dr John Cur­ran and au­thor An­drew Wil­son will delve into her mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance and role as the god­mother of de­tec­tion.

John Banville, Jane Casey and Roz Watkins will be Watch­ing the De­tec­tives with Trin­ity’s Brian Cliff.

With free events in the ban­quet hall, plus a book­shop, cof­fee and an op­por­tu­nity to get tarot cards read in aid of Rape Cri­sis, Mur­der One prom­ises a jam packed week­end.
