Bouchercon 2017 - Highlights From New Orleans at Blood on the Bayou
Greetings from the Big Easy and Bouchercon 2017, the World Mystery Convention. Here are some highlights of the conference so far.
The opening ceremonies included mini floats that transported all of our guests of honor to the stage.
Our American Guest of Honor, Harlan Coben, was interviewed by Michael Connelly and both were entertaining and funny. There was a book signing afterwards and Harlan posed for photos.
The panels have been fun, including one where authors participated in a competition and elimination game.
We attended a tea with writing duo Charles Todd and Caroline Todd, along with Deborah Crombie, to hear about their latest books.
Lee Child is here, and he interviewed David Morrell, who is receiving the Lifetime Achievement award.
