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.
