Dr. Lucy Worsley: “A Very British Murder” Lecture

Dr. Lucy Worsley: “A Very British Murder” Lecture for WNED PBS | November 15

A Very British Murder

Presentation with a post talk Q&A

An illustrated tour through the dark story of our fascination with murder, with renowned historian Lucy Worsley. Lucy has covered the history of this very British obsession in a book and BBC TV series. Here she shares its secrets and explores the history of this phenomenon in forensic detail, examining not only the crimes themselves but also how murder became a form of middle-class entertainment through novels, plays, artefacts and the press. From a Regency serial killer to Agatha Christie, this is the story of how crime was turned into art.

Lecture and post-talk Q&A are virtual via computer
