Help us celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the publication of The Mysterious Affair at Styles. This is the first appearance of the detective Hercule Poirot. Dame Agatha Christie (1890 - 1976) wrote 66 detective novels and 14 short stories collections revolving around fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. She also wrote the world's longest running play, The Mousetrap. What inspired her? What writers did she inspire? What gave her novels such lasting success? Join the discussion and take a chance at trivia for fun Christie-related door prizes!
