CPL hosts “Uncovering Mysteries” with acclaimed mystery writers

Cleveland Public Library (CPL) welcomes three acclaimed mystery writers for a special Writers & Readers event during the 43rd Annual Bouchercon World Mystery Convention, which is being held in Cleveland for the first time. The panel is scheduled for Saturday, October 6, 2012, at 12:30 p.m. in the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium of CPL on East 6th Street and Superior Avenue.

“Bringing this impressive panel of authors to CPL is a real thrill for our patrons, especially those that are mystery fans,” said Felton Thomas, Director of CPL. “Bouchercon is a fantastic literary event that attracts authors and fans from around the world, and we have the pleasure of showcasing our city and our library to attendees.”

Held annually since 1970, Bouchercon is named in honor of Anthony Boucher, the distinguished mystery fiction critic. The event attracts mystery fans, authors, and professionals to gather and celebrate their love of the mystery genre. The convention will take place October 4-7 at The Renaissance Hotel in downtown Cleveland. Panel discussions, interviews, and book signings with mystery authors will take place throughout the three day event.

CPL’s panel discussion will feature three top icons from the suspense genre: Linda Fairstein, Karin Slaughter, and Mark Billingham. Fairstein is the author of an internationally best-selling series of crime novels featuring Manhattan prosecutor Alexandra Cooper. The fourteenth in the series, Night Watch, debuted in July 2012 and was an instant New York Times bestseller. Slaughter is a number one best-selling author in five countries, has been honored by Amsterdam's Crimezone Thriller Awards four times, and is a recipient of France’s Prix des Lectureurs literary prize. Billingham, a UK crime novelist, television screenwriter, actor and stand-up comic, is the best-selling author of the series of novels featuring London-based detective Tom Thorne, and the only author to win the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award twice.

In addition to the panel discussion, an exhibit honoring Bouchercon is now on display through December 15th at CPL’s Main Library, 2nd Floor. For more information, please visit cpl.org.
