Festive Murder: Tasmanian Chapter In Conversation

May 26 @ 11:00 am 5:00 pm

Don your finest hippie gear and join Alison Alexander, Jude Alexander, and Tasmanian Chapter Convenor L.J.M. Owen to explore their motives for setting dark deeds at festivals.

Alison and Jude Alexander are multi-talented Tasmanian mother and daughter co-authors of Death at a Festival: An Australian Hippie Murder Mystery (out in May 2024) featuring a devastating crime at Australia’s wildest hippie gathering.

L.J.M. Owen is the Founder Director of TARWF, Convenor of SinC Australia’s Tasmanian Chapter, and the editor of the 2023 Murder You Wrote: An Interactive Mystery, set at a crime writers’ festival in the Huon Valley.

Please join these three Sisters in Crime for a conversation about sex, drugs, and resting murder face.

DRESS CODE: It’s time to dig out those groovy skirts and tie-dyed T-shirts. To celebrate this month’s release of Death at a Festival, the event dress code is ‘hippie’.

Copies of Death at a Festival and Murder You Wrote will be available for purchase on the day.

This event will run alongside a Sydney Writers’ Festival livestream program. RSVP to the Festive Murder event inside this SWF ticketing here.
