Christmas Crime – 15th December 2012

The beautiful village of Alriston, East Sussex, is the venue of a one day crime festival on Saturday 15th December 2012. Four panel sessions are planned (two before lunch and two afterwards), at which writers – including people like Peter James, Elizabeth Haynes, Peter Lovesey and Elly Griffiths will be quizzed on crime, criminals and coppers. The day starts at 10.30 with Peter James in the chair. The last session starts at 3.30, when Elle Griffiths will be in charge. There will be an opportunity to meet your favourite authors and, if the mood so takes you, buy a signed copy of his/her latest book.
