Wednesday Night University: The Sense of Place in the Crime Story
April 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Ever since the first acknowledged crime story, Murder in the Rue Morgue, was written by Edgar Allan Poe, no other genre, other than the travel narrative, has been more inextricably grounded in a sense of place. In this talk we will trace the history of the crime story from its geographic roots in England and the U.S. to its current settings in town, ciities, and countries throughout the world. At the conclusion of the talk audience members will receive a list of recommended crime writers and their books set in locations across the globe.
