Events in Richmond & Bethesda

This weekend—Saturday and Sunday, December 12-13—I’ll be traveling both south and (slightly) north for event in Richmond, VA, and Bethesda, MD.

First up, on Saturday, December 12, I’ll join Ellery Adams, Mary Burton, Maggie King, and LynDee Walker at 2 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble, Chesterfield Town Center, 11500 Midlothian Turnpike, Richmond. Did someone mention that it’s the holiday shopping season? Books make great gifts, of course, and we’re there to sign ours!

Then on Sunday, December 13, I’ll be appearing with John Grady, author of Matthew Fontaine Maury, Father of Oceanography: A Biography, 1806-1873, for a reading at The Writer’s Center, 4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda. That events begins at 2 p.m. as well.

In other news this week, I was interviewed by Steve Weddle at Do Some Damage and I also posted a column on reading fiction vs. nonfiction at SleuthSayers. Hope folks will check out both those pieces—and hope to see many friendly faces at the weekend’s two events!
