Readers, writers, and others with nothing better to do are invited to come celebrate the publication of Show Me the Gold at 2 p.m., Saturday, January 24, Columbia Books, 1907 Gordon Street, Columbia, Missouri.
We’ll have conversation and refreshments before and after a short presentation. I’ll talk for a few minutes about how the series has developed and why mystery writers and readers like series. I may even look ahead to book four (now beginning the production process) and book five, now in the early chapters of the first draft.
And, of course, guests can ask questions about the books or the writing of them. We had a stimulating Q&A at the book launch for Show Me the Deadly Deer a year ago.
The host, Columbia Books, is an independent bookstore that sells new, used, and antiquarian books and small items with special appeal to booklovers.
To get there from East Broadway, turn north on Old 63 (just east of Boone Hospital), and in about a mile turn right on Gordon. If you approach on Business 70 East, turn south on Old 63 (a little east of Paris Road) and in .2 mile turn left onto Gordon.
