AGM and Birthday Lunch

The Society’s AGM passed off without incident in the library of the University Women’s Club in Mayfair before moving on to the main business of the day, the Birthday Lunch.

The special guest Edwin Buckhalter, publisher of Mike Ripley’s Campion continuation novels, cut the cake and gave an entertaining speech describing how his interest in detective fiction was sparked by working in the family bookselling business where he was frequently called upon to collect books from publishers’ trade outlets and was often given free copies to take home and read. Sounds like the perfect holiday job!
