Evolution of the mystery novel

Event Date(s)

Begins: April 17, 2019 2:00 pm
Ends: April 17, 2019 3:00 pm

Local author Susan Slater will present “From Cozies to Thrillers: The Evolution of the Mystery Novel” at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, at the Ormond Beach Regional Library, 30 S. Beach St.

Slater spent 39 years in New Mexico, where she wrote mystery novels that reflect her extensive knowledge of the tribes and pueblo culture in the area. As an educator, she directed the Six Sandoval Teacher Education Program for the All Indian Pueblo Council and taught creative writing for the University of New Mexico and the University of Phoenix. She also managed technical editors and writers and was a senior instructional specialist for two defense industry contractors before retiring to Florida to write full-time. 

A past president of the University Women of Florida, she’ll explain that writing is hard work, but she can’t imagine doing anything else.

Reservations are not required for the free program, which is sponsored by the Friends of the Ormond Beach Library. For more information, call the library at 386-676-4191, option 4.
