Panel: The Golden Age of Mysteries: Tracing the Bloodline of Crime Fiction

Before Connelly there was Christie. Before Child there was Chandler. And before King there was Queen. Mystery readers and writers are invited to spend an evening tracing the bloody footprints of their favorite contemporary crime novels back to the formative authors of the genre’s Golden Age. Join us for a discussion of classic mysteries, from their groundbreaking roots to their relevance to today’s bestsellers, with a panel of award-winning authors from the Mystery Writers of America: Charles Ardai, Julia Dahl, Parnell Hall, Elizabeth Zelvin, and moderator Joseph Goodrich. This event is co-sponsored with Mystery Writers of America New York.
