Program! Program! Get Your Program Here!

In a news release this morning, organizers of this year’s CrimeFest—set to run from May 11 to 14 in Bristol, England—announced the event’s complete program schedule. As that communiqué explains:
Alongside 2023 featured guests—stalwarts of the genre, Mark Billingham and Elly Griffiths—around 50 panels will explore everything from crime fiction set during World War Two, to the crime genre in the digital age.

Panellists include Andrew Child, co-author [with brother Lee Child] of the Jack Reacher novels, adapted as
Reacher by Amazon Prime, author of the award-winning crime series set in India, Vaseem Khan, and Robert Thorogood, the creator behind the smash-hit BBC One series, Death in Paradise.
The planned and plentiful roundtables will include one titled “New Golden Age?: Today’s Mystery Fiction,” with The Life of Crime author Martin Edwards among its speakers; another “marking the 70th anniversary of the publication of Casino Royale, the first James Bond novel,” to feature “the first female 007 author, Kim Sherwood,” on stage; a panel called “Society: What Crime Fiction Says About Us,” with police detective-turned-author Graham Bartlett tapped as one of its members; and “Black Is the Night,” a discussion that will find Vaseem Khan, Donna Moore, and Maxim Jakubowski addressing the life and literary endeavors of author Cornell Woolrich.
