An Agatha Christie Presentation at Martha Canfield Library
On Sunday, April 8, at 2 p.m., the Martha Canfield Library in Arlington will host a living history performance by Helene Lang. Performing as Agatha Christie, she will tell the audience how a typewriter in Torguay spawned over 80 mysteries and created her most beloved characters, Miss Jane Marple and Hercule Poirot. Learn about Chirstie’s life and walk in her footsteps in England; discover why she was so knowledgeable about the poisons used in her stories; what influences informed the creation of her famous leading detectives; some personal information about her family; and why she went to Yorkshire under an assumed name. This is a Vermont Humanities Council event. For more information, call 802-375-6153 or visit marthacanfieldlibrary.org.
