Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

What do basketball, a discount superstore, two runaway teenagers and an explosion that screams of foul play have in common? They are just a sampling of the twists and turns found in the mystery thriller by Sara Paretsky who discussed her most recent book ""Fire Sale."" The program, which marked the 25th anniversary of the debut of Paretsky's fictional private detective, V.I. Warshawski, and the 20th anniversary of the Sisters in Crime organization, is part of the Books & Beyond author series sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. Sisters in Crime,, which Paretsky helped found in 1986, combats discrimination against women in the mystery field and promotes the professional advancement of female mystery novelists. Mystery Writers of America,, a reading promotion partner of the Center for the Book, is the premier organization for mystery writers, professionals allied to the crime-writing field, aspiring crime writers and devotees to the genre.
