The Taylor(s) run into Trouble

According to P4K, Birmingham homegirl Maria Taylor, Azure Ray songstress and solo artist, was robbed while on tour in San Francisco. OH NOES!

Murder in the Magic City

Tomorrow, the Homewood Library hosts the 2008 mystery fan conference menacingly monikered Murder in the Magic City. The door open at 9 a.m. and runs through 4 p.m. The cost is $45 and includes lunch (for those with reservations), drinks, snacks and a “goody bag”. Because of limited seating they have been encouraging reservations, but I am told a few walk-up seats are still available.

The all day event includes a panel discussion, a special session with award-winning author Donna Andrews and book signings. What’s cool is that fans can bring their own books from home to have signed by the authors present (a complete list of which is here).
