This year I furnish that room in Scandinavian modern, with plenty of shelves for interesting objects from almost everywhere. I'm moderating three panels at Bouchercon 2011 in St. Louis next month. Here's my lineup:
- Thursday, Sept. 15, 10 a.m.-11 a.m.: "A QUESTION OF DEATH: HOW IMPORTANT IS WHODUNIT?" with Gianrico Carofiglio, Agnete Friis & Lene Kaaberbøl, and Anders Roslund & Börge Hellström. This one is going to be fun.
- Saturday, Sept. 17, 11:30 a.m.-12:30, it’s “CRANKY STREETS: WHAT'S SO FUNNY ABOUT MURDER?” wherein I shepherd Eoin Colfer, Colin Cotterill, Chris Ewan, and Thomas Kaufman through a discussion of fictional killing, real humor, and the interesting ways they mix.
- Then it’s up to my hotel room to change into a fresh aloha shirt before I pop back at 1 p.m. for “NEVER LET ME GO: PASSPORT TO MURDER,” with old Bouchercon friends Lisa Brackmann and R.J. Ellory, plus Anne Zouroudi, David Hewson, and Martin Limón.
Here's the complete lineup of panels. It's not too lated to sigh up, and if you happen to be in St. Louis, Sept. 15-18, stop in and say hi.
