The Left Coast Crime convention "Calamari Crime" is coming to the Monterey Conference Center March 20-23. This is an annual mystery convention sponsored by mystery fans, for mystery fans. The event includes talks, readings and panel discussions featuring some of your favorite mystery writers, a banquet with awards presented for mystery novels in several categories. Local libraries will benefit from some of the proceeds from this wonderful event, so thanks in advance, to our friends from Left Coast Crime.
Unfortunately, registrations for this year's event is already sold out. But you might just spot one or two popular mystery writer around town during their time in Monterey. We'd love it if some of them would pay us a call at the Library! After all, where would we be without you?
Next year's convention will be held in beautiful Portland, Oregon and you can find trail of evidence by visiting Left Coast Crime's Web site.
