Events in the West Midlands 2 - Warwick Words

I had a tip-off on my facebook page about this one, Warwick Words held 1-4 October 2009. I think these are the only crime fiction related events:

An Evening with Val McDermid
Saturday 3 October
Bridge House Theatre

Join International bestselling crime writer, Val McDermid, who has sold over one million copies in the UK alone and over 10 million copies worldwide. Her novels have been translated into twenty six languages across the globe and she has won numerous international and UK literary awards.

The Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series has enjoyed tremendous success including being adapted for the award-winning ITV drama, Wire in The Blood for six series. Fever of the Bone is the latest exhilarating instalment of the escapades of the clinical psychologist and Detective Chief Inspector and yet again takes the crime fighting duo into uncharted waters.

Val McDermid has become our leading pathologist of everyday evil… The subtle orchestration of terror is masterful The Guardian.
