Zoë Sharp speaking at Harrogate Crime Festival
Saturday 25 July, 5pm Crown Hotel, HARROGATE
Part of the Theakston Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival: Zoë Sharp will be speaking together with Stuart MacBride, Caro Ramsay, Mega Abboott and Denise Mina, on a panel entitled: X-rated: Sex, Drugs and Ultra-Violence. Shocking, sickening, repulsive, amoral… how far can – or should – a writer go? Is everything permissible, or should authors censor themselves? Four of the edgiest writers in the genre today discuss everything from cannibalism to zoo-ophilia, and how to handle it all. Are they telling it like it is, or appealing to their readers’ worst instincts? All this and the sheer joy of creating mayhem on the page: not for the faint-hearted.
