Bluecoat Crime Event

 

CRIME FICTION – BLUECOAT CENTRE for Contemporary Arts - LIVERPOOL
(Saturday 16th April 2016 - 1.00 PM - 6.00 PM)

How do we account for the continued popularity of crime fiction? Is it the immediacy with which it can reflect the concerns and obsessions of society? Or the safe place it offers from which to explore the darker sides of humanity? Or that the narrative propulsion of a tightly-woven crime plot can be a source of licensed thrills, pleasure and comforting reassurance?

Contemporary crime fiction encompasses an extensive range of thematic concerns, literary styles and distinctive settings. Join crime writers for conversations about their work, influences and current perspectives on the genre starting with a reading by award-winning author John Connolly.
