The Ngaio Marsh Awards, in association with the historic Melbourne Athenaeum Library, invites booklovers to an event featuring three talented storytellers and criminal minds who call Melbourne home.
As crime and thriller writing has evolved from puzzle-like mysteries to novels delving deeply into people and places, it has continued to be the world’s most popular form of storytelling. But what makes the genre so fascinating?
Two fresh new voices in Australasian crime writing, RWR McDonald and JP Pomare, are joined by crime researcher and ‘literary archaeologist’ Lucy Sussex to discuss what draws them to mystery writing, how they craft memorable characters, and the impact of local settings, universal themes, and authors who have gone before.
WHEN: Monday, 3 June 2019
WHERE: Melbourne Athenaeum Library, 188 Collins St, Melbourne
WHEN: 6pm for a 6.15pm panel discussion
