Fresh off being the Toastmaster at Bouchercon in Indianapolis, SJ Rozan is coming to Rochester as part of the Lane Dworkin Jewish Book Festival. She will be joined on November 3rd by Daniel Levin and Gabriel Cohen for a Mystery Panel in the middle of the festival. The event will be held from 7:30-9:00 at the JCC Hart Theatre on Edgewood Avenue. The tickets are $10 for non-members, and can be purchased here.
On December 3, Canadian author Louise Penny will be speaking as part of the Rochester Arts and Lectures series at the United Presbyterian Church on Fitzhugh. The event starts at 7:30, and Standing Room Only tickets will be sold at the door starting at 6:45.
And if you want an idea of what local mystery authors are doing, all you have to do is be in Greece this Saturday, October 24. Lorna Barrett will be signing at the Greece Arts Festival at the Greece Public Library from 11am-2pm. Then at 2pm, new author Lisa Bork will be at the Barnes & Noble at the Mall at Greece Ridge. The two are doing a joint event at the School 46 Holiday Bazaar on December 5th. Barrett also has other signings throughout the holiday season, so if you miss these two events, maybe you can catch up with her another time.
