The crime writers Cathi Unsworth, Syd Moore, and Mick Finlay, whose books draw on the Hagley Woods murder of 1943, the history of witches in Essex, and murder in London and East Anglia, talk about some of the events in history that have inspired their books.

As well as being a music journalist, arts correspondent and editor, Cathi Unsworth has written a number of crime novels, both historical and set in the present day.

Syd Moore is an expert on the history of witches in Essex and author of the Essex Witch Museum mysteries.

Mick Finlay (Associate Professor in Social Psychology, Anglia Ruskin University), is author of the Arrowood crime series set in Victorian London.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A.

The event is part of Cambridge Festival 2021.
