Edinburgh Spy Week Will Return In April 2019

Edinburgh Spy Week, an annual event about spy literature and organized by The University of Edinburgh, will return again in April 2019. The week-long event is a unique public event that focuses on espionage fiction and film and the ways in which secrecy and spying run through history and culture.

As part of the schedule for the 2019 event, acclaimed author Anthony Horowitz will join for a Q&A before the screening of Casino Royale. Anthony will discuss his novel Forever and A Day, a prequel to Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale.

The event will also include a conversation between Award-winning novelist Adam Roberts and John Plotz about the cross-over between genres and the modern fascination with speculative reading as well as the birth of genre fiction and the ‘Scientific Romance’.

Another highlight from Spy Week 2019 includes screening every first film featuring a new Bond actor.

All talks at the University and the National Library of Scotland are free and open to everyone, but must be booked in advance.
