Join us for our popular Soup and Suspense mystery author program! Portland author Chris Holm will read from and talk about the latest book in his Michael Hendricks mystery series, Red Right Hand, out this September, and answer questions from the audience. The Michael Hendricks novels (two so far, The Killing Kind and Red Right Hand) tell the story of a man who makes his living hitting hitmen, only to wind up a target himself. Chris has written a mystery/fantasy crossover series, The Collector Trilogy, about Sam Thornton, a collector of souls. The novels recast the battle between heaven and hell as old-fashioned crime pulp. Chris also writes short stories, many of which have been nominated for or won awards. Sample delicious soups made by our dedicated volunteers. Door prizes! $8 suggested donation.
