on Agatha Christie

Spend an evening with the Queen of History, Lucy Worsley, as she delves into the fascinating life of the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie. For these unique, live illustrated talks, Lucy will present one most elusive and enigmatic figures of the twentieth century. Why did Agatha Christie spend her career pretending that she was ‘just' an ordinary housewife, when she clearly wasn't? Agatha went surfing in Hawaii, she loved fast cars, and she was intrigued by the new science of psychology, which helped her through devastating mental illness. So why - despite all the evidence to the contrary - did she present herself as a retiring Edwardian lady of leisure? Sharing her research based on the writer's personal letters and papers, Lucy will uncover the real Agatha Christie - the story of a person who, despite the obstacles of class and gender, became an astonishingly successful working woman. This promises to be an entertaining and enlightening evening, emphasising not just Agatha's unique gifts as a storyteller but her revolutionary qualities as a determined, successful, and thoroughly modern woman.
