Critically-acclaimed crime writer Ian Rankin to give talk in Liverpool

World-renowned crime writer Ian Rankin will discuss his remarkable career and the art of writing a novel during a special event at Liverpool Hope University.

Rankin, who is best known for the global-hit Inspector Rebus series, will also talk about the role of the writer in the modern world during the Q&A this month.

The critically-acclaimed Scot’s books have been translated into 36 languages, and adapted for radio, the stage and the screen.

During the event at Hope Park, on Taggart Avenue, Childwall, he will be quizzed by University creative writing lecturer Dr Paul Johnston, who is also a crime novelist.

Rankin, whose latest Rebus novel is called ‘In a House of Lies’, is the recipient of four Crime Writers’ Association Dagger Awards, including the Diamond Dagger, the UK’s most prestigious award for crime fiction.

The Q&A on Tuesday March 26 at 6pm is open to the public, although places are limited, and it will not be followed by a signing session.

Admission is free but guests are asked to RSVP in advance to english@hope.ac.uk.
