Open Book

OPEN BOOK, it’s not just an event, it’s an experience.

Open Book Welcomes You Back . . . In-Person Outside Event

Join Attica Locke, author of Bluebird, Bluebird and writer/producer of “Little Fires Everywhere” in conversation with mystery writer Rachel Howzell Hall

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 from 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

NOOR’S courtyard patio – The Paseo, 300 E Colorado Blvd Suite 200, Pasadena

This is a rare opportunity to meet the Emmy-nominated and Edgar Award-winning writer Attica Locke.  She will discuss the latest book in her Highway 59 series, Heaven, My Home, sequel to the NY Times best-seller Bluebird, Bluebird. Heaven, My Home was named a best book of the year by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Houston Chronicle, and many others.

We couldn’t invite just any moderator so we asked mystery writer Rachel Howzell Hall, the critically acclaimed author of recently released These Toxic Things. Hall’s And Now She’s Gone was nominated for the Anthony, International Thriller Writers, and Lefty awards, and was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.

The evening begins with a pre-event, hosted happy hour with appetizers. Then take in a scintillating discussion between bestselling mystery writers about their work and journeys to success in the world of crime fiction.

What is the Open Book Series?

Building on the successful Pasadena Festival of Woman Authors event which has been presented annually since 2009, the vision for the new series is to provide opportunities for the community to enjoy authors of all kinds – both established and emerging, national and local, men and women, writers of fiction and non-fiction – in settings that complement the author’s work or background and allow for engagement with the attendees.
