MYSTERY-THRILLER SATURDAY: An Afternoon of Chaos, Killing, Crime, and Kidnapping at Kepler’s
An Afternoon of Chaos, Killing, Crime, and Kidnapping at Kepler’s Bookstore, Menlo Park, CA, 1-5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 21, sponsored by Peninsula Arts & Letters, Kepler’s
Books, Mystery Writers of America (NorCal Chapter) and Sisters in Crime
(NorCal Chapter): an afternoon of crime, kidnapping and chaos.
On Saturday, June 21st, Kepler’s Bookstore in Menlo Park (CA) is hosting a murderer’s row of mystery/thriller authors and others for an afternoon devoted to crime fiction, for readers and writers alike.
Keith Raffel and Barry Eisler will kick it off with a discussion of the totally un-contentious topic of traditional versus self-publishing, where they have promised to resolved the Amazon-Hachette dispute in less than one hour.
Then Catriona McPherson and Cara Black will face off against Alan Jacobson and Sheldon Siegel on whether mysteries or thrillers are better. The great Laurie King has graciously agreed to moderate (or referee) this discussion and provide dignity and adult supervision.
Finally, John Billheimer, Judy Greber (aka Gillian Roberts), and Terry Shames will give on-the-spot reviews to first pages of unpublished manuscripts, so if you have something in the works you should bring it along.
