FORT COLLINS — The author of the popular Maisie Dobbs series of mysteries, set in England between the World Wars, will talk about her work on March 25 at 7 p.m. at the Hilton Fort Collins, 425 W. Prospect Road.
The free evening with Jacqueline Winspear is sponsored by the Friends of the CSU Libraries and the Poudre River Library Friends. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, no tickets required, doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Fans of both British mysteries and historical novels will appreciate the Maisie Dobbs books. New York Times bestselling author Winspear has created one of contemporary fiction’s most intriguing characters in Maisie, a housemaid-turned-student-turned-nurse-turned-private investigator in early 20th-century London. She straddles Britain’s class system by being a woman of intellect who happens to come from working-class stock. Winspear charms with her ability to convey the historical context surrounding her characters, particularly regarding the impact of the Great War.
Sales and signing of the newest book in the series, A Dangerous Place, will follow the program.
The Evening with an Author Series is presented by and sponsored by Friends of the CSU Libraries and the Poudre River Friends of the Library and supported by the City of Fort Collins Fort Fund, KUNC radio and the Hilton Fort Collins. Book sales are by Old Firehouse Books.
