Two new headline acts have been announced for the Killer Women Festival to be held at Shoreditch Town Hall on 15th October. Dangerous Lady: In Conversation with Martina Cole will kick off at 10.15am, with Melanie McGrath (co-founder, along with Louise Millar, of the Killer Women crime collective) interviewing the bestselling author about her books and writing. Later in the day, Shetland actor Douglas Henshall is hoping to drop in and chat with Ann Cleeves and other special guests about his role in Shetland and the link between crime fiction and TV. Tickets for the day are selling fast, so you’d better be quick on the draw if you want to attend.
