On Monday, September 30 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM, mystery authors Hallie Ephron, Rhys Bowen, Julia Spencer Fleming, and Hank Phillippi Ryan will hold court in Town Hall Auditorium. The event is free, brought to you by the Robbins Library.
They call themselves the Jungle Red Writers: “Smart and sassy crime fiction writers dish on writing and life. It’s The View. With bodies.” So goes the Jungle Red blog tagline. It’s where you can (virtually) meet Hallie Ephron, Rhys Bowen, Julia Spencer Fleming, and Hank Phillippi Ryan, along with four other highly accomplished and very witty mystery and crime writers. We librarians come across many an author blog in our time, but I rarely see one quite so engaging and friendly as Jungle Red. Reading Jungle Red is stumbling into the best room of the party, where you overhear the lines you want to repeat to your friends. Better yet, they are really into responding to readers who post comments, making for a true conversation.
It’s rare that the stars align to bring four powerhouses together for an event during the busy fall season, let alone four like Hallie Ephron, Rhys Bowen, Julia Spencer Fleming, and Hank Phillippi Ryan. Don’t miss this singular chance to meet and greet some of the most exciting creators of palm-sweat-inducing fiction around.
