Mystery Night in Calgary

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ November 23, 2011

I have blogged before about the vibrant mystery writing and reading scene in Calgary:  recounts my delight in meeting Louise Penny and Peter Robinson at last year's Calgary Bookfest and http://www.donnafletchercrow.com/articles.php?id=41 reports on my two book signings at The Owl's Nest bookstore on the launch of A VERY PRIVATE GRAVE .

Tonight I was back again at The Owl's Nest with my Calgary crimje-writer friends Linda Kupecek and Jayne Barnhard.      

 

 

This event was a triple reading and book signing by 3 Calgary crime writers: Susan Calder with DEADLY FALL,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stephen Legault with THE END OF THE LINE

and Linda Kupecek with DEADLY DUES and a specail treat--a sneak preview of her up-coming TRASHING THE TRAILER.

 

 

 

Store owner Michael was a genial host for the well-attended event.

 

 

Among the guests I enjoyed visiting with were Ann, a YA fantasy writer  and Garry Ryan, President of Crime Writers of Canada.

        

And then I returned home to the grandmothering duties that brought me to Calgary for this trip.

Thank you, Jenny! The mystery writing community in Calgary is really great. Tomorrow night we're having a discussion group at a coffee house--wish you could be here with us!

Dear Ms. Crow: I'm writing a book about railway construction set at the same time as Stephen Legault's END OF THE LINE. At my website (www.paulyee.ca) , I'm blogging on a variety of railway-related topics, so I'd like to ask your permission to use your photo of Stephen Legault reading on your page "Mystery Night in Calgary" November 2011. I would give full credit to you for the photo. Thanks for capturing that moment in a photo.

Hello Paul, All best wishes for your project. I love trains and train travel--I dream of taking a trip on Canadian Pacific. I would be delighted to have you use my picture of Stephen--what a fun night that was. Thank you for asking. Donna
