Jo Nesbo in North Carolina
On Friday, November 16th at 6:30pm, McIntyre’s Books in Fearrington Village, Pittsboro is thrilled to host bestselling Edgar-nominated mystery author and cult favorite Jo Nesbø for a reading of his latest Harry Hole mystery, Phantom. Pete Mock, McIntyre’s book buyer and mystery guru, says “Right now, in my opinion he is the best mystery writer in the world. He writes high powered, complex stories that keep you riveted for hours upon hour. We are his only tour destination in the Southeast, which is pretty exciting.” Nesbo’s books will be available for purchase at the event, and anyone interested in getting a signed copy of Phantom or any of Nesbo’s previous works, should call the bookstore 919.452.3030. And yes, McIntyre’s ships books anywhere in the US.
I'm supposed to be retired, but I keep busy as a media escort and editor of inSinC, the Sisters in Crime journal.
I read about 200 mysteries a year and have been reviewing and lecturing about mysteries for about 15 years. I often host mystery authors and book them into stores, libraries, and other venues in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.
If you live in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina, you may want to subscribe to "Triangle Mystery" where I operate a list-serv alerting folks to upcoming mystery events and happenings. I post bookstore and library events as well as schedules for authors who are visiting with me. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Join" button.
