I’m pleased to be part of two upcoming virtual events: helping the Fall for the Book Festival kick off its new series of Trivia Nights on Tuesday, June 16, and then joining Barb Goffman for a chat on short stories hosted by Richmond, VA’s Fountain Bookstore on Wednesday, June 17. Info on each is below—and hope you’ll join the fun!
In advance of presenting virtual author events this fall, the Fall for the Book Festival is hosting a series of summer Trivia Nights on all things book-related: “If it’s been written about, we’ll ask you about it! Books, movies, sports legends, famous literary places, technology, science, and more are all fair game.” I’ll be hosting (gulp!) the first event (guinea pig!) on Tuesday, June 16, at 7 p.m.—and hopefully doing better than night than I did on the test-run with the crew. (Did I mention “guinea pig” already?) You can find out more information and register to participate here.
Then the next night—Wednesday, June 17, at 7 p.m.—Barb Goffman and I will chat about short mystery fiction, including our two recent collections: The Boy Detective & The Summer of ’74 and Other Tales of Suspense, gathering sixteen of my own short stories, and Crime Travel: Tales of Mystery and Time Travel, edited by Barb and recently named a finalist for the Anthony Award for Best Anthology! I’m also thrilled that my own story for Crime Travel, “Hard Return,” was named a finalist for the Best Short Story Anthony as well. You can find out more about this event and register to attend here.
Hope folks reading this will join in for one or the other or both (!) events!
