The Bedford Friends of the Library sponsored a speaking event for me Tuesday night at the Central Library. I detailed my research process for historical events in SW Virginia that provided the background for setting, characters and plot, not to mention theme, in my cozy mystery/Southern Gothic A RED, RED ROSE. What a responsive audience! The Bedford Museum was the source for much of my findings, so I was gratified that an employee there attended my talk. And...I've been invited to speak before their geneological society in July!
My thanks and gratitiude to all the folks who make the arts real and accessible in our wonderful community.
