On 8th March our guest speaker was John Martin, talking about Agatha Christie.  John, a former librarian, developed a huge interest in Crime Fiction and went on to become a judge of the Dagger award and an author too.  He gave a tremendously intetesting talk about Agatha, giving insight into aspects of her life not usually known.  From her being born into a wealthy middle class family, to working in a London hospital as a pharmacy assistant during the Blitz, her loves and motherhood and how this affected her writing.  We all left with a greater knowledge of a loved author, or discovered a new author to read!
