Crime and the City - CSI Portsmouth event in November is looking good

I'm off to a meeting with Portsmouth Library and the Hayling Island Bookshop this morning, organisers of the Portsmouth Bookfest, to discuss progress on the Crime and the City- CSI Portsmouth event on Saturday 6 November where I will be appearing with fellow crime writers Graham Hurley, Simon Brett, June Hampson and Peter Lovesey, along with experts from the Scenes of Crime, fingerprinting bureau and forensic psychologists.

Everything seems to be going well, except that the venue has had to change from Portsmouth Library to the John Pounds Community Centre in Queen Street, Portsmouth, because of vandalism caused to the Central Library some weeks ago, when someone deliberately left the taps on in the public toilets and blocked all the sinks overnight causing extensive flooding.

The tickets are now on sale for the event and posters have gone up certainly in the Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth where my sister works for Nauticalia because she rang on Friday to say she'd seen my name on them.  I haven't seen the posters or the printed programme yet but hope to see copies of both today.

The Portsmouth News are also going to interview some of the authors appearing at Crime and the City, and I am booked to appear on the Sally Cronin Show on Express FM on Thursday 4 November at 1.30pm.  I'm looking forward to that.

Crime and the City - CSI Portsmouth is shaping up to be a great day, fun and very interesting too. I'll post more on this as and when I have further details. Must dash, tons to do before  the meeting..!
