Holmesian Experts Discuss A Study in Sherlock this Weekend at Poisoned Pen

Maybe it's his knack for drawing lofty conclusions from minute observations, his enviable friendship with the loyal Dr. Watson, or simply his iconic fashion: a deerstalker hat, a cape, and a pipe. Whatever combination of qualities and characteristics -- Sherlock Holmes is one of the most recognizable literary figures in the world. 

​This Saturday, The Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Scottsdale will bring Leslie Klinger and Laurie R King, editors of A Study in Sherlock, to the stage to discuss the collection of 18 stories inspired by the super sleuth. 

The pair are a couple of Holmesian experts and will sit alongside contributing authors Thomas Perry, Dana Stabenow, and Jacqueline Winspear to sign books, answer questions, and talk all-things-Sherlock. 

The contemporary authors in this collection of stories put Holmes in new situations and alternative histories that add to Sherlockian lore.

Get your fix this Saturday, November 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Poisoned Pen, 4014 N Goldwater Blvd in Scottsdale.
