Tomorrow I have the rare privilege of addressing the Washington DC branch of the National League of American Pen Women
. The League members are women who have demonstrated creative talents in art, letters, and music composition. There are Pen Women branches throughout the U.S., in addition to state associations of affiliated branches in some places.
We'll meet at 1 pm in the historic Pen Arts Building just off Dupont Circle. Instead of just talking about my own novels I'll give a presentation on the reasons so many people are addicted to crime fiction. I always drop the names of my favorite writers so if you want to get into the genre I'll give you a head start. The event is free and open to the public so plan to join us at 1300 Seventeenth St, NW, Washington DC, Saturday at 1 pm.
