An Evening With Lynda La Plante

State Library of Queensland

Spend an evening with Lynda La Plante, the acclaimed British crime queen, at State Library of Queensland's first Talking Ideas event for 2019.

Here's a one-off chance to join this best-selling author for an exclusive night of hilarious tales and insights into the mind that writes from the dark side.

The Emmy and BAFTA award-winning creator of the acclaimed Prime Suspect television crime series starring Helen Mirren, Lynda also crafted the phenomenally successful Widows (recently adapted into a film by Steve McQueen).
