I’m pleased to be a part of this year’s Virginia Festival of the Book, beginning Wednesday, March 22, and continuing through the weekend. It’s a real honor to moderate the showcase Crime Wave panel on Friday evening, March 24, with Edgar Award winners Megan Abbott and John Hart and first-time Edgar Award finalist Bill Beverly—and I’m looking foward as well to attending the Crime Wave brunch on Saturday morning with Laura Lippman! Later on Saturday, I’ll be manning the Sisters in Crime table as part of this year’s Lit Fair. My schedule is below:
- Panel (as moderator): “Crime Wave Bestsellers” with Megan Abbott, Bill Beverly, and John Hart, Jefferson School African American Heritage Center, 233 4th Street NW • Friday, March 24, 8 p.m.
- Crime Wave Brunch with Laura Lippman (as table host), Omni Hotel, Ballroom B/C, 212 Ridge McIntire Road • 10 a.m.
- Sisters in Crime booth, Festival Lit Fair, Omni Hotel Atrium, 212 Ridge McIntire Road • 3-4 p.m. (my shift)
Looking forward to a fun weekend ahead!
