“This will be a great event to hear from active members of the Mystery Writers of America,” Goff says. “You can be involved with the group, but you’re not considered active until you’ve published your first book. Everyone reading has something officially in print.”
Goff says she’s looking forward to hearing from fellow writers like Manuel Ramos and former First Lady of Colorado Helen Thorpe, who will read from her new book Soldier Girls (not a mystery) and do double duty as emcee for the event. “And Manuel Ramos is an old Chicano from the Corky Gonzales days of Denver; his book Desperado analyzes the gentrification of the Highlands area from the perspective of the Hispanic man,” Goff notes.
Check out Mystery and Mistletoe tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Denver Press Club, 1330 Glenarm Place. Hors d’oeuvres and a chance to mingle with the writers are included; a cash bar will be also be open. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at rmmwa.org or at the door.
