Hear Author Discuss Heart-Pounding Mysteries Tonight

Laurie KingNorthBay Healthcare and the Solano County Library are teaming up to deliver an author’s perspective on producing heartpounding mystery novels.

California writer Laurie King, author of a series of detective fiction and historical mysteries, will be the featured speaker at the Feb. 26 event at the Vacaville Town Square Library. The event is free.

King’s books include the Mary Russell series of historical mysteries, which features Sherlock Holmes as Mary’s mentor. She also has written a series featuring Kate Martinelli, a fictional San Francisco police officer.

“Each year our Women’s History Project donations provide the library with resources and women with fun opportunities to learn and grow,” says Dilenna Harris, executive director of the Solano County Library Foundation. “We hope many women take advantage of this free heart-healthy event.” Light refreshments will be served and a book signing will begin at 6:30 p.m. The author will take the floor at 7 p.m. for a presentation, followed by questions and answers.

Keeping up on its end of the heart-healthy deal, NorthBay Healthcare will provide information about the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, and what to do if you think you or a loved one is experiencing a cardiac event.
“It’s especially important for women to know, because the symptoms can be quite different than those experienced by men, but just as deadly,” says Diane Barney, NorthBay’s director of Public Relations. “We want women to enjoy heart-pounding mysteries with healthy hearts.”

The event is free but seating is limited. To RSVP call Solano County Library at 1-866-57-ASKUS.
