2021/22 | Agatha Christie

For 2021/22, we are proud to present an exhibition on perhaps the Isokon’s most renowned resident, Agatha Christie: the Lawn Road Years.

Christie is the best-selling novelist of all time. During her long career, she wrote 66 detective novels, 14 short story collections and over 30 plays. The most famous, The Mousetrap, is the longest running in the world, having debuted in 1952. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and a billion in translation. She lived in the Isokon building between 1941 and 1947.

Learn more about Christie's time at the Isokon in this short film.

To celebrate Agatha Christie: the Lawn Road Years, we are stocking a range of Christie accessories in our shop.

Exhibition researched and written by Leyla Daybelge.
