A ship bound from India to Japan. A haiku master's verse. A dubious Earl and a small Japanese acrobat. What a start to a wonderful trip to the Far East with Laurie R. King's novel, Dreaming Spies. 

In this, the 13th in the Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes series, our guest for March CapRadio Reads, Laurie R. King, spins a tale of intrigue while also educating us in the history of Haiku and the Japanese Royal Family. Her vivid descriptions of the countryside give us a sense of what pre-war Japan was like and what customs entailed. 

I hope you will be able to join us, for what I'm certain will be a fascinating evening with this very special author, in conversation with our own very special Donna Apidone. The fun all starts at 6:00pm on Tuesday March 10, in our Community Room. I'll look forward to seeing you there.
