The Life of Agatha Christie
with Stuart Barnett
7:00-8:00 pm
Oliver Wolcott Library
Despite the days of a "Christie for Christmas" being long past,
Agatha Christie remains a cultural force. Yet not enough people know
about this notoriously private woman; many people assume she was
an old woman who fussed about with tea and scones. Her actual life was
nothing like this. Come and learn more about a woman who defied the norms
of her times and led a life that will definitely surprise you. Dr. Barnett
spent the last two last summers in England researching
Agatha Christie's life, with the assistance of her grandson.  

Stuart Barnett is Professor of English at Central Connecticut State University
who is currently writing a book on the cultural impact of And Then There Were None.

All Oliver Wolcott Library events are free and open to the public.
Space is limited. Registration is required.
