Why is crime fiction so popular, with titles dominating the bestseller lists, providing entries in the canon, and attracting new writers every day? Join award-winning suspense novelist Milchman when the “world’s longest book tour” brings her to Vroman’s, where she’ll lead a discussion with local authors about why some of the nicest people in the world read and write about mayhem, murder, death, and destruction.

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author’s most recent title from Vroman’s. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman’s Bookstore events unless otherwise noted. Save your Vroman’s receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.
