As the final installment in the DCI Banks series is published, we will be celebrating Peter’s work in a special event. You will hear from crime writers, academics, and students on the mastery of Peter’s work and his connection to the University, and have the chance to delve into Peter’s literary archive, housed in the University’s Brotherton Library.

You can attend the event in person, or online. For more information, visit the Leeds University School of English website.
