Welcome all to the latest edition of Baker Street Babes Live and Local: New York Public Library Edition!
This June, Babe Lyndsay was honored to be a guest panelist for a fascinating discussion of the Holmes mythos at the Mid-Manhattan Library. Helmed by the erudite and charming hostess of the monthly ASH Wednesday meetings, noted Adventuress and Irregular Susan Rice, the panelists engaged in a rousing discussion of all things Holmes, followed by a sprightly (occasionally very sprightly) audience Q&A.
Otto Penzler is a longtime Baker Street Irregular and world-famous editor of mystery fiction. His brick and mortar store, The Mysterious Bookshop (located in downtown Manhattan) is a Sherlockian’s Mecca, and he yearly contributes to the BSB’s Daintiest Thing Under a Bonnet Charity Ball. He is also the editor of Lyndsay’s upcoming short story collection, The Whole Art of Detection: Lost Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes.
SJ Rozan, a former architect, is the author of fifteen crime novels and around four dozen short stories. She is an Irregular, and has won the Edgar, Anthony, Shamus, Macavity, Nero, and Japanese Maltese Falcon Awards, to name but a few.
