AGATHA CHRISTIE NEWSLETTER!

AGATHA CHRISTIE NEWSLETTER!

The Agatha Christie Week celebrations kick off in the UK on the 13th September. To coincide with the Queen of Crime's birthday we have a week of events planned. Highlights include new radio productions; unpublished short stories; plays and debates. And of course we'll be reading and discussing Murder on the Orient Express and Dead Man's Folly in the book club. If you aren't able to join us in the UK, then why not keep up with the events we have planned through the website or why not plan your own with other fans?

Read more about the events on offer.

HAVE YOU JOINED THE BOOK CLUB?

In keeping with Christie Week, why not try reading
Dead Man's Folly? It's based down at Torquay where the annual Christie Week festival takes place. Or prepare for The Southbank's Book Club on Christie and read Murder on the Orient Express. Go to The Royal Festival Hall in London on the 14th September to discuss her most famous novel or debate with other fans on the website. It's free to attend!

DID YOU KNOW...

...that the new Miss Marple series which debuted on PBS was one of Masterpiece Mysteries most successful broadcasts? We hope you enjoyed the films - and thank you for making them such a success!As always, the films have caused debate in the forum - why not
have your say?

We've been inspired by one of our contributors this month.
Join in the debate about the best Christie holiday reading.

EXERCISING THE LITTLE GREY CELLS!

1 - Which detective appears in the short story Death on the Nile?
2 - Who directed the second film to be based on a Christie novel?
3 - In which year did Joan Hickson make her West End stage debut?

LAST TIMES ANSWERS WERE:

DON'T FORGET...

If you fancy a break from reading there are four Christie games you can
download and take on holiday with you.
