Miss Scarlett, in the lounge with the lead pipe!
If that declaration brings back fond memories, or if you can solve a mystery faster than Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot, the “Minnesota Crime Wave” is for you. On Saturday evening, Friends of the Library will be hosting the event with a trio of authors — William Kent Krueger, Ellen Hart and Carl Brookins – all Minnesota Book Award winners, for conversation, a book signing and an audience participation activity— a game of “Spot the Imposter.”
“The authors have put together three stories; one story is true, two are not,” said Jan O’Donnell of Friends of the Library. “(Audience members will) guess which story is true and the winners will be entered into a drawing to receive a book of their choice written by one of the authors.”
The event, a fund raiser for the “Love you Library” renovation project, will be held at United Church in Two Harbors at 7 p.m. and promises to offer something for the reader and amateur sleuth in all of us. Raffle tickets are being sold and will be available for purchase throughout the summer for an array of special works by local artists, including a striking handmade quilt, Tonder glass work, and woodwork by Tom Koehler.
Minnesota Crime Wave is free and open to the public and an opportunity to meet and greet three accomplished writers, said O’Donnell.
“These are very well known, well respected authors who are coming to celebrate the renovation of the library by spending time in Two Harbors.”
