We close the book on HistFest2023 with a look at the bestselling novelist of all time. Using papers in the Christie Archive, Dr Lucy Worsley has recently published a new biography of Agatha Christie.
In this unmissable illustrated talk, Lucy investigates the life and work of this most ingenious – and prolific – of authors.
Just what happened during those mysterious 11 days in 1926, after Christie vanished from her home late one evening? Was she exacting (non-murderous) on her cheating husband? Staging a publicity stunt to promote her latest book? Or lost in an amnesiac fugue state brought on by crippling depression?
Join Dr Worsley as she pieces together what happened…
