Lucy Worsley with Belinda Gergel: An Elusive Woman
Tue, Nov 7 from 4pm - 5pm
With access to personal letters and papers, Lucy Worsley’s biography of Agatha Christie is authoritative and entertaining, making a convincing case that the creator of two of the most indelible characters to appear in detective fiction, Hercule Poirot and Jane Marple, was a true pioneer. Lucy Worsley’s investigations bring into the open mysterious episodes in Christie’s life, with the result that the biography “is as unputdownable as any of the novels of the Queen of Crime herself” (The New York Times).
Lucy Worsley discusses Christie’s enduring allure with historian and Festival Board member Belinda Gergel.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to health reasons, Lucy Worsley has been unable to travel to Charleston and will participate via a live video link. Belinda Gergel will appear in person.
