Laurie and Anne Perry, in conversation?

After a slow beginning, this next twelvemonth is heating up when it comes to events.

June 29030, ALA conference, Las Vegas. I’m sitting the Sisters in Crime booth Sunday, then talking to Sherlockians and at the Author Tea on Monday.  If you’re a librarian, I’ll see you there!

July 24-27, in Corte Madera, the Book Passage Mystery Writing Conference. Isabel Allende, Cara Black, Otto Penzler, Anne Perry, Valerie Plame, Jackie Winspear, Tom Rob Smith, me–I mean: wow!  The list of faculty is here, the schedule here.  And I’m SO thrilled because I get to have an onstage conversation with Anne Perry! I mean, really, why wouldn’t you come?

August 2-3, Bay Area Sherlock.  All Holmes, all the time.  Except when we talk about Mary Russell, of course…

September 5-6, library events in Seattle and Tacoma–details to come.

November 13-16: The all-inclusive, ever-thrilling madhouse that is Bouchercon! And, this year it’s in Long Beach, which will be so utterly and completely fine.

January 9-10 (dates to be confirmed): the Baker Street Irregulars meeting in New York, signing copies of the new anthology In the Company of Sherlock Holmes.

February 12-15, the San Francisco Writers Conference: four days and 90+ sessions of pure genius, plus me!

March 12-15, Left Coast Crime, Portlandia edition.

    I lived in the Bay Area until 5 years ago. Yikes!! Perhaps I should come back for a visit to all those super writers? I first hears Laurie “live” about 7 or so years ago when The Art of Detection was chosen as the Contra Costa Reads selection. What a treat. I am looking forward to hearing more about your visit to Seattle.

    I just don’t understand why Transporting hasn’t been invented yet, in which case I would SO be at all those west coast appearances (well, maybe not ALA; I did enough of that when I was working!) On the bright side, I WILL be in Long Beach for Bouchercon, hurrah. Hope everyone of these is fun for you and a smashing success overall, Laurie!

    A few days ago I checked on the Book Passage Mystery Writers’ Conference and about fell off my chair. Signed up! Laurie: quite a group! Cheers! //Meredith
