Mystery on Main Street, New England's only bookstore devoted exclusively to tales of mystery and suspense, will host its third annual Masters of Mystery event Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4 at 119 Main Street in Brattleboro. This year's event coincides with the Brattleboro Literary Festival.
On Saturday, October 3 at 12:15 p.m. meet Vermont mystery writer Don Bredes, author of The Fifth Season and Cold Comfort. Bredes' latest is The Errand Boy, which exposes the violence that can lie under the tranquil serenity of rural Vermont.
Also on Saturday, Peter Abrahams, whose The Fan was turned into a Robert DeNiro thriller and whose Echo Falls series offers a wealth of delights for young and old, talks about his books at 5:45 p.m.
Then, on Sunday, October 4 at 1 p.m. Halloween arrives early with writer Joseph A. Citro (Weird New England) and artist Stephen R. Bissette (Swamp Thing, co-author of Prince of Stories: The Many Worlds of Neil Gaiman) introducing their latest collaboration -- The Vermont Monster Guide.
