The Hound of the Baskervilles inspired authors

Monday, 8 February, 2021 - 19:00 to Wednesday, 24 February, 2021 - 14:00
West Sussex Library Service

As part of the BBC Novels That Shaped Our World library campaign, West Sussex Library Service will be virtually hosting three bestselling Sussex authors in February.

Inspired by the Sherlock Holmes novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, which features in the celebrated BBC list, the library service will be interviewing three contemporary crime and thriller writers to investigate the role that reading has played in their lives.

All three events will take place over Zoom, throughout February and will explore the books that have inspired and influenced these popular novelists:

  • Monday 8 February at 7pm with Sunday Times Bestselling Author Elly Griffiths. Famous for her acclaimed Dr Ruth Galloway series, Elly’s recent standalone mystery, The Stranger Diaries, was a Richard & Judy bestseller and won America’s most coveted accolade for crime fiction, the Edgar Award.
  • Monday 22 February at 7pm, Isobel Ashdown will be discussing her favourite reads and how they have influenced her writing career. Isobel is the author of eight novels, including the bestselling thriller Little Sister and her latest, the critically acclaimed 33 Women.
  • Wednesday 24 February at 2pm with Jane Lythell. Jane worked as a television producer and commissioning editor before becoming Deputy Director of the BFI and Chief Executive of BAFTA. She now writes bestselling psychological suspense thrillers.

Tickets to all of these events are FREE and you can register here.
