Abiola Ogunbiyi an actress and writer, known for Jamestown (2017), A Boy Called Christmas (2020) will be in conversation with Melanie McGrath, award-winning writer of fiction and non-fiction and co-founder of Killer Women and Grace Harrison, co-founder of Foul Play, the first ever non-sensational and female-led true crime magazine as they discuss feminism and crime, the trope of the female victim and how women crime writers are reclaiming the narrative. Join us for a compelling discussion bought to you by Bookomi, as we dissect the latest true crime podcasts in detail, the boxset binges on TV from around the globe and gripping new thrillers on the page.
As the first ever literary prize to award novels with no violence towards women launches and we become increasingly aware of the media we consume, we find ourselves questioning — can you really enjoy reading about crime and still be a feminist? And why is it that women are particularly fascinated by true crime and psychological thrillers?
Hosted by Bookomi’s Rachel Schofield
