Crime Writers discuss the importance of setting in Crime Fiction: Whether it's the mean streets of an urban jungle, a sleepy seaside town, or a mountain hideaway, setting can set the mood for a story and almost become a character in itself. In this panel hosted by Crime Writers of Canada, five Canadian crime writers will discuss their use of setting and how it affects thrillers, whodunnits, and other stories of suspense.
Moderator: David Poulsen
Panelists: A.J. Devlin, Winona Kent, Niall Howell, Paulette McCarthy
