When it’s cold outside, cosy up to a plate piled with scones, pastries, and finger sandwiches, washed down with strong coffee or aromatic tea. But beware! Dr Kathryn Harkup, author of A is for Arsenic, is here to remind us that in the hands of literary Grande Dame Agatha Christie, everything on the menu could—and did—become a murder weapon.

Dr Harkup will talk about how the Queen of Crime deployed poisons, and where she found her inspiration.
