KAMLOOPS - The TNRD Library System is hosting a trio of readings with crime writer Peter Kirby at the Kamloops Library, the Savona Library and the Chase Library.

Kirby reads at the Savona Library on Wednesday, March 9, at noon; the Kamloops Library, also on March 9, at 7 p.m.; and the Chase Library on Thursday, March 10, at 5 p.m.

Open Season is Kirby’s most recent novel and it features a Guatemalan journalist who is kidnapped, and the only message from her kidnappers is the murder of her lawyer. In a race against time, Detective Inspector Luc Vanier sets about reconstructing her life, through the sordid world of human trafficking, the secretive underbelly of a multinational mining corporation, and the hiding places of desperate refugees.

Funding for these events was provided by Canada Council for the Arts, AELAQ, and Linda Leith Publishing.

The event is free, but space is limited, so please contact your local branch to pre-register.
