The QuébeCrime Festival Starts Tomorrow!
Are you coming to the festival? The QuébeCrime Festival starts tomorrow, Thursday October25th, with an Opening Cocktail at the Morrin Centre at 5PM. Captain Émile Trudel, Quebec’s Chief of Police from 1903 to 1939, will share with us a few anecdotes of his professional life, among which his involvement in the Blanche Garneau case, one of Quebec’s unsolved crimes. Several of QuebeCrime’s Most Wanted authors will be there.
Have you read John Connolly? Patrick Senécal? Mons Kallentoft? The thrill of the festival is getting to discover many great authors and meeting them in person. This year we have a great line-up of 23 international authors with events in French and in English. You can read the biography of most of the authors participating in the QuébeCrime festival by clicking on their image on this page.
Our main events are divided into discussion panels, where four to six authors will be discussing and debating specific subjects, and readings, where each author will read an extract from their latest book. In both cases you will get a chance to meet the authors and get your books signed. Books in French and in English will be available to purchase on location.
Ever wished you could be a member of a CSI team? Our special CSI activity will allow you to be part of a Crime Scene Investigation team and follow chemistry specialists as you investigate a (fake, we think…) crime scene and analyze the evidence to uncover the truth!
All the events of the QuébeCrime Festival take place at the Morrin Centre. The festival ends on Saturday October 27th with our last event beginning at 9PM. You can purchase your tickets at La Maison Anglaise bookstore or online today. When the festival starts, tickets will only be available at the door of the festival itself. Get your tickets now as places are limited.
We look forward to seeing you at QuébeCrime!
