Event Details

The Friends of the Safety Harbor Public Library present their annual membership drive with a performance of Agatha Christie: Queen of Crime by professional storyteller and actress Nan Colton. Doors open at 6:00 pm for membership renewals, mingling, and refreshments; performance begins at 6:30 pm. 

Agatha Christie, one of the bestselling authors of all time, is most known for her two major fictious detectives, Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple. She began writing as a young child and continued to write well into her eighties. Nan Colton’s performance reveals how Ms. Christie came up with her stories, the birth of her daughter, the mysterious 11 days in 1926 when she ‘disappeared’, and then of humorous anecdotes of her life with her second husband, the world-famous archeologist Sir Max Mallowan.

Nan Colton is a professional playwright, director, storyteller, actress, and Literary and Performance Teaching Artist. She has performed and lectured professionally on stages throughout South Africa, Great Britain, and the United States.
