Murder in the Magic City
Murder in the Magic City is a mystery conference for fans of all sub-genres of mystery novels. The conference consists of panel discussions and presentations. Lunch, coffee and doughnuts, sodas, and a “goody bag” are included in the registration fee. In addition, they have a basket auction each year for charity. Baskets consist of at least one book and items related to that book/theme.
Why the “Magic City”? When Birmingham was founded around 1871, it grew so fast that people said it happened “just like magic”. Currently, Birmingham is Alabama’s largest city. There are lots of fun things to do there, including a fantastic Museum of Art, and the Civil Rights Institute is a great visit. Of course, no trip to Birmingham would be complete without seeing Vulcan, the naked statue, made even more famous by the late mystery writer, Anne George.
AND - I'll be there, along with a whole bunch of great writers (including some very good buddies of mine - Yay!).
Registration for the event will open December 1, 2013.
