I am so excited and so proud to be one of the organizers of this fantastic event. Anyone who can get to the Deerfield Public Library on March 25th at 2pm and registers with only a $15 payment can come. No need to be a member of ARRT.
Please consider joining us. This will be a librarian centric author event. They will talk about the art of writing and the finer points of writing mysteries in particular. In addition, They will discuss what librarians should look for in recommending different mystery subgenres, and you’ll come away with many new suggestions for your patrons. I hope to see you there.
