Last year we decided to take in a bill that included the American mystery writer, Michael Connelly (see program notes below). We've heard great writers here in prior years - Doris Lessing and Richard Ford (whom we met) among them.
After the sun disappeared, the huge Basilica di Massenzio, part of the Forum, was magically lit for Connelly's reading. We did not know his work at the time, and we are not huge mystery fans. But the focus on Los Angeles and noir detective fiction appealed to us.
