Leonardo City Hotel, Cooper’s Row, London

To close out National Crime Reading Month 2022, we are delighted to invite you to this year’s Daggers Gala Dinner on Wednesday 29 June at the Leonardo City Hotel on Cooper’s Row in London.

Everyone – readers, writers, editors, agents, publishers, bloggers, journalists – is welcome, but it’s in your interests to book soon, as this year we are reducing our maximum capacity in the interests of social distancing.

This year’s after-dinner speaker will be the CWA’s very own Booksellers Champion and bestselling author, Elly Griffiths. Elly is the author of the Dr Ruth Galloway series and was awarded the Dagger in the Library in 2016. Her first stand-alone novel, The Stranger Diaries, won the 2020 Edgar Award for best novel. The second, The Postscript Murders, was shortlisted for the 2021 CWA Gold Dagger.

The role of MC will be a double act this year, with esteemed crime writing expert and compère extraordinaire Barry Forshaw joined by his Crime Time co-host Victoria Selman, bestselling author of the serial killer thriller series featuring criminal profiler Ziba MacKenzie.
