The Authors @ The Teague will present three authors to discuss "Strong Heroines in Crime Fiction" on Saturday, Aug. 15 at 2 PM. Join us for a panel discussion and book signing with three authors with varied backgrounds.
Ann Parker is the author of three historical mysteries set in Leadville, Colorado during the Silver Rush. Her latest book from Poisoned Pen Press is Leaden Skies. Once again, saloon owner, Inez Stannert, is caught up in murder and intrigue. This time, former President Ulysses S. Grant just happens to be in town.
Juliet Blackwell, who once wrote mysteries with her sister under the name Hailey Lind, has started a new series, beginning with Secondhand Spirits. Secondhand Spirits, first in the new Witchcraft Mystery Series, features Lily Ivory, a witch who opens a vintage clothing store in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco.
Sophie Littlefield's debut novel, A Bad Day for Sorry, is one of the most talked about debut mysteries of the year. Publishers Weekly called Sophie's character, Stella, "Spunky, unapologetically middle-aged and a tad cantankerous."
So, we have an author with three books in a historical mystery series, an author who is starting her second series, and a first-time author. It should be a fun discussion!
The Velma Teague Library is at 7010 N. 58th Ave., Glendale, AZ 85301. Call 623-930-3431 for more details. Hope to see you Saturday at 2 PM!
