AGATHA CHRISTIE BLOG TOUR AND FESTIVAL




The Agatha Christie Blog Tour is running the whole month of September to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the birth of the great crime writer. You can read the Blog Tour schedule, and link to some excellent posts here at Kerrie's Mysteries in Paradise.


I shall be attending "Matthew Prichard and John Curran in conversation" which I note is sold out, as are some of the much more expensive celebratory events. In the current recession this is surely a sign of the enduring popularity of Agatha Christie, and the affection in which she is held by the people of Devon as well as the thousands who travel from all over the world for this festival, and to visit the author's beautiful holiday home at Greenway.
Listening to the discussion will be interesting enough, but the promise of a 'cup of tea and special birthday cake' is definitely not to be missed. I shall be posting about this event, hopefully with some photos, as part of the blog tour on 16 September BST.
I do hope the weather will be better next week for the festival, and our trip down to the English Riviera, because today the rain is bucketing down in a constant deluge.
Much more like Devon than a Riviera.

Norman - Oh, I wish I could be there! I hope you have a wonderful time, and of course, please blog copiously about it and share the wealth with the rest of us : ).

Margot-I don't think you would like to be in Torbay today. It is very wet.
The drive from Paignton through Torquay, Shaldon, Teignmouth, and Dawlish can on a nice day be beautiful and very riviera like, but on rainy day with the heavy cloud and mist it is not very pleasant.
