Crime Event at the Indie Alliance Weekend

I've had press releases from Faber and Quercus about this upcoming event at Foyles in London:

Saturday 11 September and Sunday 12 September
Brought to you by the Independent Alliance with PD James, Geoff Dyer, Emily Woof, Philip Kerr & many more…
It may sound like something from Star Wars, but really the Independent Alliance is a network of independent publishers, joined together to ensure their extraordinarily diverse output reaches the widest audience possible. Publishing everything from internationally best-selling crime-writers, to Booker Prize winners, to those undiscovered gems only an independent house can unearth, this weekend they bring to Foyles a vast array of authors for two full days of literary events - including discussions on counterculture and how to write non-fiction, and speed-dating Indie-style. Join us for one or both days, as we celebrate independence in all its forms.
The crime event is:
2pm – 3.15pm: Crime Time
PD James (Faber), Philip Kerr (Quercus), Adam Creed (Faber), & Elizabeth Wilson (Serpent’s Tail)
The popularity of crime novels never seems to wane, but what is it really that captivates us so about crime? Is there a winning formula for the ultimate whodunit, or is any setting, any character ripe for murder and intrigue? Our distinguished crime writers discuss.

(Chaired by Peter Guttridge.)

One ticket covers the whole day and the costs are £15 one day/ £25 both days (concessions are available) and can be purchased via the events page at Foyles bookshop.
