Desert island crime fiction

October 27, 2020 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Online (Zoom)
Cath Bauman

What crime novel would you want with you if you were stranded on a desert island? Fiona Malcolm will kick things off with some of her ‘must take’ and most re-read crime novels. Then it is your turn. Tell us about your ‘must take’ or most re-read crime novel or sit back and listen to what others have enjoyed.

This talk will be given by Fiona Malcolm. Fiona moved into public libraries 30 something years ago where she shared her love of crime fiction with all and sundry. She can’t remember when she didn’t want to be a librarian. From the moment she saw Batman on TV (Adam West version) and discovered that Batgirl was a librarian, her future was sealed. What could be better? Librarian by day, crime fighter by night. Fiona started work at the Melbourne Athenaeum Library in March 2020, just in time to close the library due to Covid-19.
