St Hilda's Mystery and Crime Conference

Launched in 1994, this conference offers the audience the unique experience of hearing their favourite authors exploring a theme. It has become a significant entry in the calendar of crime fiction conferences and is a wonderful way to spend a weekend with like-minded devotees of crime fiction. This year's theme was ’Another Crime, Another Place: The role of location in crime fiction’.

Speakers examined the many areas crime fiction covers: the police detective, historical, ‘hard- boiled’, clerical, classical fairy tales, domestic, the golden age gems, and the light-hearted. Icelandic crime fiction novelist Yrsa Sigurðardóttir was the Conference Guest of Honour and Natasha Cooper was the Conference Chair.
