Join Sisters in Crime San Diego Chapter
Partners in Crime for a talk by
May 14, 2:00 p.m. PST
On Sat, May 14, at 2pm, Pacific Time, join the San Diego chapter “Partners in Crime” for a talk by San Diego author Rex Pickett. The Archivist, his latest book, is set around the University of California San Diego campus. Rex will be tuning in for the event from New Zealand, where his is writing Sideways, NZ.
The BOOK: When archivist Nadia Fontaine is found dead of an apparent drowning, Emily Snow is hired by Regents University to finish the job she started — to organize and process the papers of Raymond West, a famous Pulitzer Prize-winning author who has been short-listed for the Nobel. She finds a Pandora’s box of erotically and intellectually charged correspondence between Raymond West and the late Nadia Fontaine. Through their archived emails, Emily goes back a year in time and relives the tragic trajectory of their passionate love affair. Did Nadia really drown accidentally, as the police report concluded, or could it have been suicide, or, even worse, murder?
Rex Pickett is the critically-acclaimed author of the novel Sideways, which was adapted into the iconic, award-winning feature film. Rex is also the author of two Sideways sequels – the IPPY Gold Medal award-winning Vertical, and Sideways 3: Chile. He was the screenwriter of My Mother Dreams the Satan’s Disciples in New York, which captured the 2000 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short, making Rex, technically, a two-time Oscar-winning writer.
When: May 14, 2022 02:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
