Thursday, February 14, 2008

On Tuesday, March 4, 2008, 7:30 p.m. Join Lyn Hamilton, internationally best-selling mystery author, to celebrate cold-blooded Canadian crime writing with an archeological twist. This event will be the last of the popular six-part series, which has featured Canada's top crime writers reading to a full house at Toronto's castle on the hill. Lyn Hamilton will read from the latest adventures of crime-solving archeologist-meets-detective Lara McClintoch, in her book The Chinese Alchemist. Hamilton's critically acclaimed first McClintoch book, The Xibalba Murders, received an Arthur Ellis Award nomination for the best first crime novel in Canada. Her sixth McClintoch novel, The Magyar Venus, was also nominated for an Ellis award for best crime novel.

Also reading will be Toronto author and musician Rick Blechta, as he takes on murder most foul in Toronto's jazz scene in his latest novel, A Case of You. An Arthur Ellis Award Nominee for his contributions to Canadian mystery writing, Rick is the author of six popular mysteries that seamlessly blend music and murder.

Canada's crime writers are celebrated around the world - join us for an evening of murder and mayhem at the reading series that celebrates them close to home.

Admission $12.00.
