Boulder Junction Public Library Presents Local Author, Connie Berry
July 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Boulder Junction Public Library presents local author, Connie Berry, on Thursday, July 15, 7 pm, at the Boulder Junction Community Center. Connie will be discussing her Kate Hamilton Mystery Series, set in the UK and featuring an American antiques dealer with a gift for solving crimes.
The first book in the series, A Dream of Death, won the IPPY Gold Medal for Mystery and was a finalist for the Silver Falchion and Agatha awards. Book Three in the series was released June 8, 2021. Connie will also talk about growing up in the high-end antiques trade and the shops in the Northwoods her parents used to haunt on vacation.
Like her protagonist, Connie was raised by charmingly eccentric high-end antiques dealers who instilled in her a passion for history, fine art, and travel. She received her bachelor’s degree in English from DePauw University, including studies at the University of Freiburg in Germany and St. Clare’s College, Oxford, where she fell under the spell of the British Isles. She earned her master’s degree in English Literature at The Ohio State University while raising her two sons, typing her master’s thesis at a child-sized table in their playroom.
Besides reading mysteries and writing them, Connie loves history, foreign travel, cute animals, and all things British. She lives in Ohio with her husband and adorable puppy Emmie and has a vacation home in the Northwoods. More info about Connie can be found at her website https://connieberry.com/.
This event is free and open to the public. The Shade Tree from Minocqua will be selling Connie’s books and she will be signing copies. Refreshments will be served. For questions and further information, please call the library at 715-385-2050 or email [email protected].
