Dreaming Spies, our featured book for CapRadio Reads' March Author Event, is our guest Laurie R. King's 13th novel in the Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes mysteries. 

With the popularity of the BBC program, Sherlock, and the recently released book Silk Road, by Anthony Horowitz, we must remember that Ms. King has been on top of this game for many years. Her first book in the series, Beekeeper's Apprentice, features a very young, 15-year-old Mary Russell. 

With Dreaming Spies, we see Mary, and her now-husband, Sherlock, going from Oxford to Japan and back again in another wonderfully historic mystery. What a treat to be able to meet the young Hirohito. We know his name because he was the Emperor of Japan during World War II, but the young prince is really quite a charming, naive fellow.

It will be such a treat to have Laurie R. King with us in conversation with Donna Apidone. I am sure the questions and answers will give you an even closer look at this historic, if unknown, couple. 

Please join us at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 10, in our Community Room, and don't wait a minute longer to get your tickets, as they will be gone in a blink of an eye.
