To promote the launch of their new series, “Hardcover Mysteries,” this fall, Investigation Discovery is holding a cool event at the Library of Congress on Monday night, and we’ve got two tickets to give away.
“Hardcover Mysteries” will feature 8 novelists, each talking about a criminal case of particular significance to them, whether it directly inspired one of their books, or it reflects themes common in their work, or affects them in some other way. On Monday night, David Baldacci, Sandra Brown, and Kathy Reichs will speak in the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Auditorium about their chosen case.
Baldacci’s even has a local angle- the 1964 murder of DC socialite Mary Pinchot Meyer, who was rumored to have had an affair with President Kennedy and whose ex-husband was a CIA official. And of course Kathy Reich is the author of the Temperance Brennan novels, which are not set in DC, but the TV series based on them (sort of), “Bones,” is indeed set here.
Tickets are $2.75 each, plus Ticketmaster fees (which can cost more than the tickets as you know), the doors open at 6, and the fun starts at 7. If you can’t make it at all, you can catch the live feed at investigationdiscovery.com/event
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment below, and suggest the novelist you’d be most interested in hearing expound on criminal cases. A winner will be picked at random Thursday at noon, and you MUST leave a valid email address so we can contact you.
