Crime writer and Leeds alumnus Peter Robinson died after a short illness last year. The Leeds-born novelist was well known as the author of the best-selling DCI Banks novel.
As the final instalment in the DCI Banks series is published, we will be celebrating Peter’s work in a special event. You will hear from crime writers, academics, and students on the mastery of Peter’s work and his connection to the University, and have the chance to delve into Peter’s literary archive, housed in the University’s Brotherton Library.
The three-hour event will be followed by light refreshments.
The event is free to attend but registration for both online and in-person attendance is essential. We kindly request that individuals only register for in-person attendance if they are certain they will be able to attend, as spaces are limited.
