Come See Us at Bouchercon 2015

Bouchercon 2015 opens in one week. The North Carolina Writers’ Network will have a booth at the convention, so please come by and say hello. You might have the pleasure of sharing a few laughs with one of our tireless board members who will be around all weekend.

Wondering who else is going to be there? The Bouchercon website offers a list of attendees. Now you can plot ways to bump into that important connection—or see if you’ll spend the weekend trying to dodge an old flame.

Don’t miss Friday’s panel, “Acorns Nurtured Here: The Talent Past, Present, and Future,” featuring Network members Ruth Moose, Karen Pullen, and Chris Roerden. This panel happens at 2:30 pm in Governor’s II.

Network member AJ Tata will sit on the “Local Guest of Honor” panel on Friday at 2:30 pm in Congressional AB; Karen and fellow member Art Taylor will read from and sign the 2015 Murder Under the Oaks Anthology on Saturday at 10:30 am in University ABC; Karen will be a featured guest at “In Honor of Librarians: a Southern Tea” on Saturday at 2:30 pm in State CD; Art will sit on the panel “Short, and Shocking: The Mystery Short Story” on Sunday at 10:00 am in Governor’s I; and AJ will sit on the panel “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly: Heroes and Antiheroes” on Sunday at 10:00 am in State EF.

Margaret Maron, cousin of North Carolina poet laureate Shelby Stephenson (she introduced Shelby at this 2014 induction into the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame) will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Bouchercon is the world’s finest annual crime fiction event, bringing together more than 1,000 authors, fans, publishers, reviewers, booksellers, editors, and every other part of the community for a fantastic four-day event. This is their 46th year.
