Last week was a very exciting and interesting week for me (Rose Dotten, Shelburne Public Library). I spent a week in Arizona on holidays and managed to fit in lots of reading and a wonderful evening at a bookstore called The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale. This is a small independent bookstore that specializes in crime fiction – it was neat to look at their shelf of new releases and realize that I had read more than half of them already!
The purpose of going to this venue was to attend the talk and book signing of my friend, author Hilary Davidson. Hilary just released her fourth book, ‘Blood Always Tells’ and was on a cross US and Canada book tour. It was an enjoyable evening, meeting other authors as well and seeing the line-up of authors that will be there over the next year.
I, of course, read Hilary’s book and enjoyed it very much. Her previous books focused on Lily Moore, a travel writer who was caught up in murder and intrigue. We have all of Davidson’s books at the library so do come in and read them.
One other item of note is that in her acknowledgments, Hilary mentioned Nancy Frater and Book Lore. Hilary did a reading there last year.
