Dan Hale, the executive vice president of the Mystery Writers ofÂ America, explains why you should go to Borders on Thursday:
Award-winning mystery author Elaine Viets recently had a stroke, just before her national book tour was to have begun. The American crime fiction community adores Elaine, so we’re standing in for her — coast to coast — while she recovers. Suzanne Frank (a.k.a. Chloe Green), Harry Hunsicker, James Lavish, Janis Susan May, and I are covering Elaine’s Dallas appearance: May 10, 7 p.m., BORDERS BOOKS AND MUSIC #032, 10720 Preston Road, Dallas, TXÂ 75230. Some details on Elaine and the national effort to cover her tour are here. The media in other cities is already covering the story.
