Talk on Fictional Sleuths in France This Week

James McNeill Whistler, Alice Butt, c. 1895

I will be giving an illustrated talk at Parisot Library, 82160, France this week on my current shift from writing novels based on real medieval women to a series of medieval murder mysteries, featuring a fictional sleuth.

My sleuth, Beatriz de Farrera, is a Catalan trobairitz (or female troubadour). I’ve envisaged her based on this portrait by Whistler.

The presentation starts at 10.30am on Saturday 9 April, is free, and is followed by aperos.

My talk is part of the LibraryLit series.

Parisot is home to the marvellous bi-lingual Festilitt literary festival that takes place every year in October.
