Join us for an evening of mystery and intrigue as David Kilner presents “Enigmatic, my dear Watson: The Life of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.”

You may be familiar with the character Sherlock Holmes, but for the first time come along and learn about the creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Crime fiction author, David Kilner, will present this engaging talk exploring Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s life from a broad perspective and delve into Doyle’s career as a writer, his amateur sleuthing pursuits, and his spiritualist beliefs.

Doyle’s connection to Adelaide will also be highlighted, as he once described the city as “so pretty, so orderly and so self-sufficing.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the man behind the mystery. Places are limited, book in now to avoid missing out.
