Why should you attend?

“One of her best . . . Whether read as a crime story with roots in international politics or as the latest chapter in a fascinating family drama, [Murder in Bel-Air] is a deeply satisfying and entertaining novel.”  —Booklist, Starred Review

“This superbly entertaining crime novel [A Bitter Feast] will delight mystery fans who crave character-rich, classically composed mysteries in the style and manner of those written by the late, great P.D. James.” —Library Journal

“Deadeye is another strong book in the Luce Hansen series. I’m torn between wanting things to end with Luce finding a level of contentment and continuing the series and putting Luce through more soul-searching. Either would make me happy – as long as Doench keeps writing more books as engaging and satisfying as these first three have been.” —C-Spot Reviews

“’English 398: Fiction Workshop’ is the academic short story I didn’t know I wanted, but want it I did indeed. How [Taylor] weaves contemporary social issues into his stories without seeming contrived is a true gift.” —Kristopher Zgorski, BOLO Books
