ake a note in your diary for this fantastic event on Saturday 3 November 2012 where you can meet and mingle with top selling crime authors and top forensic crime experts; hear how the authors write their popular crime novels, find out how much they draw on real life experiences and experts, learn about what really happens at a crime scene, and how an investigation is worked, discover what forensic experts do, see how the fingerprint bureau works, have your fingerprints taken, and much, much more.
This will be the third year of CSI Portsmouth and it promises to be an even more exciting and informative event than ever with new crime experts and best selling favourite crime authors.
Held in Portsmouth, England
Portsmouth is fast becoming Britain's favourite waterfront destination. Its irresistible mix of history and heritage, specialist shopping, lively arts, great restaurants and bars and a programme of year round events make it a popular destination, while the beautiful scenic coast of the Isle of Wight is just a short trip across the Solent.
Portsmouth is also a great literary city, most notably the birthplace of the author Charles Dickens whose bicentenary Portsmouth is celebrating throughout 2012. Portsmouth was home to H. G Wells and Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, who is celebrated today with the Arthur Conan Doyle Collection Lancelyn Green Bequest, a brand new archive research centre devoted to Doyle. And it's home to my rugged and flawed detective, DI Andy Horton who features in seven marine mystery police procedural crime novels.
CSI Portsmouth is part of Portsmouth BookFest, a festival of popular literature organised by The Hayling Island Bookshop and Portsmouth City Library Service. It runs from 22 October 2012 to 3 November 2012.
Hope you can join us for CSI Portsmouth 2012 on Saturday 3 November 2012.
