Thank you to everyone who attended our event on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the work of Margery Allingham and Eric Ambler. We had a wonderful afternoon!
We were very fortunate to be joined by Barry Pike, the Chairman of the Margery Allingham Society, to introduce us to one of the ‘Queens of Crime’ and her famous work and providing excellent recommendations of where to start within her list. This included Traitor’s Purse, Hide My Eyes and The Tiger in the Smoke. Crime author Simon Brett gave a fantastic introduction to Ambler’s career, and provided us with a wonderful insight to his work suggesting that we start (if you haven’t already!) with The Mask of Dimitrios – considered his most famous work – and The Levanter.
Thank you to our Publisher’s for providing the majority of the books for our guests to take away with them and review. We look forward to receiving anything you have to say about these wonderful Authors!
Keep your eyes peeled for our next event in the New Year!
