Event Description

In spite of the emphasis on ebooks these days it has been my experience that print books live on in a way that ebooks don’t.  There is still that chance encounter with a book that leaps off the shelf in new bookstores, used bookstores and libraries and changes the life of the reader (who might also be a movie producer) and  the author.  I will talk about the ways these chance encounters have changed my life in recent years.


Judith Van Gieson is the author of thirteen mystery novels set in New Mexico.  Her first series (published by HarperCollins) featured Albuquerque lawyer/sleuth Neil Hamel.  The protagonist of the second series, Claire Reynier, is a librarian at UNM. The Reynier series was published in paperback by Signet and in hardcover by UNM Press.  Books in both series have been regional and IMBA (Independent Mystery Booksellers Association) bestsellers.  The Shadow of Venus in the Reynier series was given the Zia Award from NM Press Women for the best work of fiction by a NM woman.  After graduating from Northwestern Judith worked in publishing in New York for several years and now runs her own publishing company ABQ Press which helps writers to self-publish their work.
