Brattleboro Literary Festival hosts next Literary Cocktail Hour
BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Literary Festival invites everyone to join in at 5 p.m. Friday, July 17, for a free virtual Literary Cocktail Hour, featuring three extraordinary mystery writers - Archer Mayor, Paula Munier, and Julia Spencer-Fleming.
Mayor is the author of the Vermont-based Joe Gunter series; the 31st book in the series, "The Orphan's Guilt," is forthcoming in September. Munier is the creator of the Vermont-based "Mercy and Elvis" mystery series featuring former Army MP Mercy Carr and her retired bomb-sniffing dog, Elvis. And Julia Spencer-Fleming is the author of the popular series featuring Reverend Clare Ferguson and Chief of Police Russ Van Alstyne, based in Miller's Kill, New York. The ninth book in this series, "Hid From Our Eyes," was released in April.
Their conversation will be moderated by Sarah Stewart Taylor, author of the "Sweeney St. George" series and the "Maggie D'arcy" series. She grew up on Long Island, and was educated at Middlebury College in Vermont and Trinity College, Dublin, where she studied Irish Literature. She has worked as a journalist and writing teacher and now lives with her family on a farm in Vermont where they raise sheep and grow blueberries.
This will be the third of a series of Literary Cocktail hours hosted by the Festival. To register for this free event, go to https://bit.ly/LitCocktail3.
