We are thrilled to welcome award-winning biographer Claire Harman to Durham Book Festival. Murder by the Book is a gripping investigation into a vicious murder that scandalised Victorian literary London, a crime inspired – or so the killer claimed – by one of the bestselling novels of the day.

Claire Harman is the bestselling biographer of Sylvia Townsend Warner and Robert Louis Stevenson and the author of Jane’s Fame: How Jane Austen Conquered the World and the acclaimed Charlotte Brontë: A Life.

Chaired by Professor Simon James, Durham University
