Kathy Reichs will be appearing at In Conversation with Kathy Reichs on Saturday, March 31st at the Lord Nelson Hotel in Nova Scotia. This event is one of a series at the 3rd annual Halifax International Writers’ Festival. Here’s the info I have so far:
Kathy Reichs is the best-selling author of the Dr. Temperance Brennan forensic mysteries and the real-life inspiration for the Fox Television series “Bones”. Ms. Reichs has written nine novels that have been published in 30 languages worldwide.
Kathy Reichs, like her fictional creation Temperance Brennan, is a board-certified forensic anthropologist for the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine Légale for the province of Quebec, a position she also held at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, State of North Carolina. She is Vice President of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. A professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Dr. Reichs received her Ph.D. at Northwestern University. She now divides her time between Charlotte and Montreal. Her debut novel, “Déjà Dead”, brought her fame when it became a New York Times bestseller, a #1 international bestseller, and winner of the 1997 Ellis Award for Best First Novel. “Break No Bones”, her ninth Temperance Brennan novel, is on bestsellers lists across North America.
Doors open at 2pm and the event begins at 3pm. Advance tickets are $10 and are available at Frog Hollow Books, the Book Room or buy them online at www.halifaxwritersfest.com.
The Halifax International Writers’ Festival is proudly supported by CBC Radio, Halifax Public Libraries, The Coast, Frog Hollow Books, and KHG Management.
