An Evening of Mystery Authors: Aunt Agatha's Mystery Bookstore Celebrates 25 Years

Thursday October 19, 2017: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

This event will be recorded

Aunt Agatha's Mystery Bookstore celebrate their 25th anniversary with this special AADL event featuring mystery authors William Kent Krueger (and his new mystery Sulfur Springs) and Julia Keller ( with her latest, Fast Falls The Night). The authors will discuss their new books and the mystery genre.

William Kent Krueger has received many awards, including the Minnesota Book Award, the Loft-McKnight Fiction Award, the Anthony Award, the Barry Award, the Dilys Award, and the Friends of American Writers Prize. His last seven novels were all New York Times bestsellers. He writes a mystery series set in the north woods of Minnesota. His protagonist is Cork O’Connor, the former sheriff of Tamarack County and a man of mixed heritage—part Irish and part Ojibwe. Sulfur Springs is number sixteen in the Cork O’Connor series.

Julia Keller won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing for a three-part narrative series about the aftermath of a deadly tornado and the randomness of fate. Her books include Mr. Gatling’s Terrible Marvel: The Gun That Changed Everything and the Misunderstood Genius Who Invented It, Richard Jordan Gatling: Back Home and the Bell Elkins mystery series, set in Acker’s Gap, West Virginia. The newest in the series, Fast Falls The Night is based on a real-life event and takes place in a single 24-hour period, unfurling against the backdrop of a shattering personal revelation that will change Bell Elkins' life forever.

This event includes a book signing and books will be for sale.
