Hello, I’m Adele Douglass, guest reporting for DoorCountyDailyNews.com and the Friends of Door County Libraries.
Today I am here to tell you about an upcoming event that should appeal to all readers of mystery novels. Award-winning author Bryan Gruley will be appearing at two events this Friday and Saturday. On Friday, October 26 at 7 p.m. he will be speaking about his books at the Miller Art Museum located in the library in Sturgeon Bay. The next morning Saturday October 27 at 10 a.m. he will address readers in Sister Bay at the Liberty Grove Fire Station. Both events are free and open to the public.
Mr. Gruley’s first book was titled Starvation Lake and won several major awards. It was also nominated for the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Novel. This was followed by The Hanging Tree and The Skeleton Box both of which were widely acclaimed.
The setting for all three books is rural Michigan. The novels include a very likeable detective who is also the editor of the local newspaper. I look forward to listening to the author talk about his books, the fascinating characters, crimes, and settings which seemed so delightful to me. Mr. Gruley, who has worked at the Wall Street Journal where he shared the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the September 11 terrorist attacks, will also sign books at both events.
If you love who-dun-its, these events will be of great interest. Come and hear Bryan Gruley talk about his writing and share your reading interests with like-minded folks. The events are free, but we would be delighted to have you bring a non-perishable donation to Feed my People.
Hope to see you Friday at 7 at the Miller Art Museum or 10 a.m. Saturday at the Fire Station in Sister Bay.
