Elkins authors in Fourth Friday spotlight

SEQUIM — Tonight’s Fourth Friday Readings will host Sequim authors Aaron and Charlotte Elkins as special guests.

The evening will start at 6:15 in the media room at The Lodge, 660 Evergreen Farm Way.

The authors will offer insights about their writing during a question-and-answer period.

Aaron Elkins is the creator of the modern forensic mystery, having pioneered the genre with his series about the Skeleton Detective, Gideon Oliver.

He is the recipient of an Edgar and a Nero Wolfe Award, writes stand-alone mysteries as well as series and has had books made into an ABC-TV series.

He and his wife Charlotte Elkins, who published romances under the pen name of Emily Spenser, have collaborated on many mysteries, including a new series about “the art whisperer” named Alix London.

Her background expertise is in the world of fine arts.

At Fourth Friday, Aaron will read from his most recent novel and both will answer questions.

Following the presentation are five-minute open mic readings.

Admission is free. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, as event organizers expect a large turnout.

For the open mic, bring poems, short-short stories or memoir/novel snippets. Rehearse in advance, as readings are timed.
