A Conversation with Art Taylor and Tara Laskowski (canceled)

This event has been canceled for now, stay tuned for a new date.

ART TAYLOR, The Boy Detective & The Summer of ’74 and Other Tales of Suspense

This collection features 16 stories which have collectively earned an Edgar Award, an Anthony Award, three Agatha Awards, three Macavity Awards, and three Derringer Awards. From his first story for Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine in 1995 to his latest for Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine—the title story, 25 years in the making—this collection charts the development of Art Taylor’s career so far.

In addition to his short fiction, Taylor is the author of On the Road with Del & Louise: A Novel in Stories, winner of the Agatha Award for Best First Novel. As a critic, his work has appeared in the Washington Post, the Washington Independent Review of Books, and Mystery Scene Magazine. He is also a professor of English at George Mason University. 


After spending a Thanksgiving at the beach with her family, Laskowski couldn’t shake the feeling that within all this off-season beachy quietness was a sense that in the nothing happening, anything at all could happen. 

Her debut novel explores what happens when an outsider with her own unsettled past can chip away at the idyllic beach town façade and reveal the sinister secrets buried below. Part electric coming-of-age story and part breathtaking mystery, this is an atmospheric novel about power, privilege, and sisterhood.

“A subtly but relentlessly unsettling book."—Tana French, author of The Witch Elm.
