Mystery author Evan Marshall was kind enough to let me know about this fantastic panel discussion of mystery book authors which will be taking place this coming Tuesday (Nov. 17) at the New York Public Library.
I love the theme of the panel! Evan said his “Fellow panelists are the fabulous Jane Cleland, Joani Ascher, Cynthia Blair, with Daryl Wood Gerber moderating.” >>> That’s a great mystery author panel!
Evan was kind enough to include the following details:
“Here’s the info from the NYPL website:
Tuesday, Nov 17 — 6:30 PM
“Cozy Mysteries: Amateur Sleuths and Feline Detectives,” with moderator, Daryl Wood Gerber, and panelists, Joani Ascher, Cynthia Baxter, Jane K. Cleland and Evan Marshall of Mystery Writers of America / New York Chapter.’ ”
“In this lively discussion about “cozy” mysteries, the moderator and a panel of stellar authors face the tough “cozy” questions: What distinguishes a cozy from a traditional mystery? Humor? Charm? Suspense? Why do so many readers love books that feature cats? (And can a cat really solve a crime?) The panel, whose amateur sleuths run the gamut from antiques business owner to New York Sanitation Department employee-reveal all!”
The panel will be held at the Mid-Manhattan Library, which is apparently at 455 Fifth Avenue. The site also has a telephone number for all of you New Yorkers who are interested in attending: 917-ASK-NYPL (917-275-6975) (I just got that information from the New York Public Library site and since I have never visited the NYPL, I would suggest that you verify the address.)
I love the Cat Mystery Book Series theme that they will be discussing… Can cats really solve mysteries? I guess that the lucky New Yorkers who attend the panel will find out on Tuesday night. If cats can solve mysteries, Sprite (our 15 year old puppy) will simply have to learn a new trick, or be put to shame!
