Real Crime, Real Fiction

Does the consumption of crime novels influence the way we read about real crime?

Where does ‘true crime’, which takes its inspiration from actual events rather than mere imagination, fit in? In this panel discussion, writers, curators and journalists explore the impact of real-life crimes on the writing and production of crime fiction, both on television and in print.

Joining our host, writer and journalist Barry Forshaw, will be authors Laura Wilson and Mark Billingham, alongside screenwriter Nick Dear and Carla Connolly, curator at St Bartholomew’s Pathology Museum.
